    Through 9 games, Aaron Hicks has drawn as many walks as Joe Mauer. In fewer PAs, I might add.

    On a positive note, in a sorry blowout, Hicks had his best single-game K% performance of his young major league career, only 20%!

    I thought about this after the KC sweep and decided not to look it up because it would be too depressing. And I was right.

    I don't think today's game is included in that 17. So make it 20 K's for Aaron in 46 PA's with 2H and 3BB's.

    Interesting hypothetical: Were Aaron Hicks to face the Twins starting staff exclusively, what would happen? Guy that K's all the time vs staff that Ks nobody. Something would have to break...what? I'm guessing the space time continuum would collapse into another big bang.

    What you're describing is one of the oldest philosophical problems known to man: the Resistible Force versus the Movable Object.

    In 2010 on BYTO is was full of sunshine and lollipops. When the team stinks, you get a lot of sad stats.

    "Sad statistical facts" can be fun, too. Truly bad is at least as interesting as truly good. Both require the same degree of abnormality.

    Every last one of you is getting the ban if this conversation about lollipops continues.

    I've muted the radio every game, after just a few at bats of listening.....that's a new record for me personally. Usually I go innings or complete games by now. Not sure what the stat is for that exactly.
    Lighten up Francis....
