This tidbit from yesterday's Boston Globe spring-training live blog:
Nick Green, currently the leading hitter on the Red Sox, just blasted a home run to straight away center. Green, who did not play in the majors at all last season, has been destroying the Grapefruit League this spring; he came in with a .526 batting average, and he's got 11 hits now. That homer must have gone about 435 feet; it was an absolute bomb. In his career, Green, 30, has an OPS+ of 72.
What's so amazing about this? Not that AAAA player Nick Green is rocking the exhibition games, which is great and all – but that a reporter for the Globe just used OPS+ as a stat without referencing someone's mother's basement. Adam Kilgore, stick around a while. Please.
