Quality Starts…what else would you expect


He never ceases to amaze me, but let me begin by saying Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! George Kottaras has called complete games in 2 of his last 3 starts to go along with a stellar outing by Jon Lester (7 IP 4 H 0 R/ER 2 BB 9 K) on Πάσχα (Orthodox Easter). Despite going 0-for-5 in his last 2 starts (dropping his AVG to .182), he managed to drive in a run via a sacrifice fly. George has played perfect defense so far this season and his young career, and has managed to throw out a base stealer making him 1-for-5 on the year.

So far in his young career, George doesn’t have stand out stats, but he is EFFICIENT. Efficiency is hard to come by in young catchers, especially with those who’s defense has been called into question. Look for his bat to come around in his next couple of games. He possesses a big bat, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts his hot streak soon. Here’s a picture I found showing George having hit .217 AVG 8 HR 28 RBI by  May 26th, 2008 (I cannot remember where I found it). Even though this isn’t Triple-A, it gives you some idea of how he can get “hot” in an instance.

Keep it up George!
