    Why not double switch here, Cola for Hughes and Deduno for Morales?

    Thanks, that's funny because my guess was going to be either 3 or even 2 if the Dead Ball era was as hard on triples as it was homers (it was, briefly, followed by a spike).

    But I never would have guessed that a speedy leadoff guy like Brady Anderson, who averaged nearly 10 triples and more than 25 SB's per season in his prime would be that leader at just 34 years of age.

    PS Which site did you use to look that up?

    Well that was a quick half inning.

    Looking forward to seeing many more of those at TF.

    Now Cola comes out of the dugout...what happened to my double switch? I guess it is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other as it is turning out. Probably was going to replace Deduno anyway, with his pitches going everywhere.

    If they are going to get to 13, they need to score multiple runs this inning.

    Very safe. Looked up that '98 roster; they should have been renamed the OldAndSlowioles for that season. These are the guys with qualifying PA's in 1998:

    Harold Baines, 39 Hit one triple in half his 14 seasons from 1988-2001 (including '98), and zero in the others.

    Joe Carter, 38 One triple in what would turn out to be his last season.

    Cal Ripken Jr., 38 and managing the only triple of his final FIVE seasons.

    Eric Davis, 36, a former burner who followed an 80 steal '86 season with 50 the next. Legged out one of THREE triples he recorded from 1991-98.

    Rafael Palmeiro, 34, one triple, and averaged less than one per season for the rest of his career.

    B.J. Surhoff , 34, former catcher, one triple, averaged one per season in the remaining seven seasons of his career.

    Chris Hoiles, 33 catcher, zero '98 triples, two total in over 2800 PA's.

    Roberto Alomar, one triple despite being just 30 and logging 80 career triples to go with 474 career stolen bases.

    Former Twins Rich Becker was the runner up with 2 triples despite just 199 PA's.

    It's like a perfect storm of slowness.
