Jorge Sosa has taken Kaz Ishii's place as the luckiest man in baseball. After a 2005 season where he had a 2.55 ERA despite striking out 85 and walking 64 in 134 innings, Sosa violently regressed to the mean in 2006. Here in 2007, the wizard is backup to his old tricks. His terrible strikeout rate and mediocre walk rate is being boosted by a .200 BABIP. Hopefully tonight Sosa begins to regress back to where he belongs. Or he could pull the old Kaz Ishii walk the bases loaded, get someone to line into a double play, then get a fly out at the warning track trick. Whatever works.
