EXcub factors in the ALCS: The Horn
Mark Bellhorn was struggling at the start of 2003. So Chip Caray gave him a nickname "The Horn". I'm still waiting for Joe Buck to use this nickname on FOX or for that matter for Jerry Remy to use it on NESN.
The Horn still strikesout way too much. But he takes some walks.
The Horn attended Auburn University. He was an All-American in 1995.
This year Bellhorn was decent. As a switch hitter he hit .298 LH and .246 RH. He really enjoyed Friendly Fenway hitting .283 in front of the monster, only .244 on the road. Here are the rest of Bellhorn's numbers in 2004: 138 G, 523 AB, 93 R, 138 H, 37 2B, 3 3B, 17 HR, 82 RBi, 88 BB, 177 SO, 6 SB, .373 OBP, .444 SLG, .264 AVG.
