For those of you who missed today’s game, Raul Ibanez hit two dingers that played a crucial role in the M’s victory over the Athletics. He now has 17 home runs on the season, and is now half way towards tying the MLB’s record for dingerz by a 40+ year old player in a single season; never mind his strike out rate of 25% or his 5.6% walk rate.
