Cubs Trivia:

Which Cubs reliever led the National League in sacrifice hits in 2008?

Sean Marshall or Grabow...

I'm grasping at straws, I have no clue who was in most of the bullpen...

This sounds like a calendar error. I think the answer would be Dempster, but he did not pitch in relief that year.

I'm tossing out Howry because I can't recall most of the bullpen outside of Kerry Wood and Marmol at this point.

So off the top of my head we had:

Marmol
Marshall
Wood
Grabow
Howry
The guy who wore the stirrups (my new guess is this guy) - remembered - Aaron Heilmann

Which means there is at least 1 guy we are forgetting.

Thought about it some more and Spriggs is probably right. No way a reliever leads in sacrifice hits when they barley get a chance to bat in general.

Wuertz I believe was in the pen as well that year.

I just cheated a bit and looked at the B-R page for the '08 Cubs...goodness were there a few names I completly missed. And I agree that it appears that the caledar is wrong.

Unless there were very few relievers with sacrifice hits, and Sean Gallagher's 3 led the league.

It also depends on when during the season you wanna talk about, if I recall we also had Neal Cotts and Chad Gaudin on the opening day roster but it all depends on who had the most atbats during that season coming out of the pen, and for as decent as the pitching staff was that season for having the most S-H that season and being from the Cubs its really hard to believe it was a RP

That's right. Dempster had 19, which led the league (even though the Cubs were slightly below the league average for SH). But Dempster only started that year -- he didn't have a single relief appearance.

Way to go, Phil. YOUR calendar is wrong AGAIN.

Damn puppet.

The Calendar should know better than to try to hoodwink the brilliant minds of the Message Boards!

The Calendar does indeed list Dempster.

Stupid Calendar!

Thanks everyone for not mentioning that I didn't name a reliever. I apparently can't read. Would definitely not have guessed Dempster, though.

Didn't he pitch an inning or relief in a blowout in '08? I thought you were just thinking outside the box.
