Theriot consistently above expectations

What can you say about Ryan Theriot? The guy has been a rock solid stud all year. He’s a playmaker in the field, shows up everyday, keeps his mouth shut, steals a few bags, and how about his numbers at the plate – check these out:

  • Past 7 days:  he’s 9 for last 21 at bats with a .429 average; .520 on-base
  • Season:  .320 average; 56 walks to just 41 strikeouts; 65 runs scored

He is clearly one of the main reasons the Cubs are 27 games over .500, best record in the NL, and apparently cruising into October baseball as a favorite.  “The Riot” is doing what winning teams need; he’s performing above expectation, above average and with consistancy.

      Theriot has been ” performing above expectation” since he was playing in kid baseball in Baton Rouge. He always had confidence but had to prove it to the coaches because of his diminutive size.

      Many were surprised when LSU Baseball Coach Skip Bertman granted Ryan a baseball scholarship. Again he “performed above expectations.” They did not think that he would live up to the standard of LSU’s NCAA
      National Championship baseball that was the measuring stick for the Tigers when he entered college.
