Brisbee: The 10 most underrated players in baseball, part 2

Part 1 here.

What is an underrated baseball player?... It’s the Supreme Court definition of obscenity: I know it when I see it. There’s a feeling of je ne sais notice that goes along with the player, good, great or otherwise. The only thing I’m pretty sure of is that players who have won the All-Star voting in recent years aren’t eligible. That’s a clear popularity contest, and the popularity eliminates players from consideration. Sorry, Josh Donaldson.

Brewers win ninth straight game behind dominant Lohse

from the article:  Lohse allowed one run on four singles and no walks, throwing 76 pitches for strikes and leading his team to a 10-2 record (best in baseball) in just two hours and 11 minutes.

really strong defensive work from the brewers this past weekend.  multiple nice plays all over the field both infield and outfield.  Reynolds started a nifty 3-6-3 double play on Friday night and logan Schafer made a beauty of a catch in left on sunday on an alvarez fly ball where logan crashed into the wall as he was making the catch.  just a really swell play

the only nuisance factor in the current winning streak is that ron has these guys still running into outs on the bases.  and the combination of gomez and sedar (3rd base coach) is sure to trigger another stroke as carlos is beyond eager to get the extra base and eddie has never met a preordained to fail dash to home plate he wasn’t willing to risk.

but go crew!
