I was looking at the box score from today's game because I am 55 years old and it is already Monday morning and it is 1988 and I am reading the morning paper while having coffee, and I noticed something: Humberto Quintero only saw 10 pitches today. He went to the plate five times.

Man, 'Berto, even Francoeur got to 16.

Even by Quintero's standards, it was an aggressive game. Quint (I'm just auto-generating lame nicknames that are nonetheless better than whatever Yost calls him) averages 3.42 P/PA, which is 3rd fewest on the team, behind Falu and Bourgeois, who both basically haven't played.

Berty saw two pitches in the 2nd, two in the 5th, two in the 7th, and four total in the 9th, when he batted twice.
