A Question With ...

April 13, 2007

Corey Patterson, Orioles outfielder

Is there more parity in baseball now than since you can remember?

Yeah, definitely. I was watching the Devil Rays play on Opening Day and they can hit. They were hitting, stealing bases, running a lot. Before, there were teams that you played and it was almost like an automatic win. [Now] it seems like if a team is a little suspect on pitching, they sure can hit. Or if they can't hit as well, they can sure pitch. ... It's very rare nowadays to have teams who do both poorly.
