2007 Dominican League Baseball Leaders (through Thanksgiving)


The winter baseball league in the Dominican Republic had an open date on the schedule yesterday while Americans celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  Therefore, it seemed like a good time to check in with the league leaders.

 Padres prospect Vince Sinisi is still in position to make a run at the triple crown, while young Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto is looking more and more like a big leaguer.  Here are the top perfomers through 25 or so games for each team (I use minimums of 3.1 plate appearances or 1 inning pitched per team game to qualify for batting and ERA leadership)

  1. I was lucky enough to catch a couple innings of a game on a Spanish speaking sports station. Jose Lima was pitching against Licey, but he seemed more concerned with yelling at the home plate umpire. Some of the words he was yelling were in English, or at least 1 word repeated many times. Somehow the umpire didn’t throw him out.

    I still dream of Victor Diaz playing 2nd base for the Mets.
