plunks on 2 sides
If Matt Morris hits Craig Biggio with a pitch tonight he will become the 17th pitcher to plunk Biggio for 2 different teams. Of the 16 pitchers who have done that already, 7 of them hit Biggio at least once while pitching for the Giants. No other team has had as many Biggio plunkers who also recorded one for another team. The Mets are second in that category with 4, followed by the Rockies with 3, and the Marlins, Brewers, Expos, Phillies, Pirates and Padres all had 2.
The most recent member to join this club was Chris Hammond who hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on August 23, 2005 for San Diego after doing so for Florida in 1998.
Jamey Wright could become the first pitcher ever to plunk Biggio for 3 different teams, but it looks like he'll miss the Astros in the rotation if the Giants don't change things around due to the rain out.
