Ed Kranepool, Pinch-Hitting, Five Years

A skill we could have better used in almost any other five-year era.

This run is what cemented Ed's rapport with Met fans, historically

Up until this point, he was a heavy-legged, surly, phlameout of a phenom who was a million dollars of promise and ten cents of delivery. After this point, he was Saint Ed.

Eddie was such that it took a clear and obnoxious error for him to reach on one. Or maybe the combination of a bad stop by the shortstop, a bad transfer to his throwing arm, a bad throw in the dirt, and bad pick by the first baseman would do it.

Per 572 ABs, a full season's worth, Ed scores only 76 runs (doubtless because he was pinchrun for a lot), drives in 164, and hits 20 HRs.

Ah, so ROE is 'Reached on Error'.
And XI, I'm guessing, is hits in eXtra Innings?

My original post was my way of saying I had no fuckin idea what either of those columns meant.

"XI" is for reaching base on an interference call.
