    Hi
    I was just thinking about Dauber and decided to check the internet to see if I could find some info on him and I found this site. I got to know him when he was in Boston (his #1fan) what a nice man. I was glad to hear that he was indeed awarded a World Series ring from the team for his play with the team earlier in 2004.
    I read one of the postings here about how he met his wife. He did not meet her in Baltimore, he met her in Boston. The sportscasters that do the radio broadcast of the Sox games were talking about it one day. One of them, Joe Castiglione was saying how he goes to a certain place to have his hair cut and he was telling a girl that worked there that he had the perfect guy for her. He was nice, a gentleman and hard-working. She did not want anything to do with a professional ballplayer, but Joe said, just give him a chance, I guarantee you will like him....and the rest is history. He married her a year later and they had a son last year.

    I am interested. Thanks for the update, Pesky! Here's hoping the guys make their respective teams. It'd be especially cool for Dauber, as the Cards are his hometown team.

    Daubach update

    For anyone who's interested, Brian Daubach is going to ST with the Cardinals as an NRI, and Lou Merloni is with the Indians as an NRI.

    Alas, I fear Brian's career has finally come to an end, on Saturday the Mets designated him for assignment. It's not likely anyone will pick him up.

    It's too bad, he's one classy guy!

    Brian Daubach Reappears (to me, at least)

    As I live in the Washington, DC area, I was just sitting there last night watching our new Washington Nationals playing the New York Mets. In the top of the ninth inning, who should come to the plate as a pinch-hitter for the Mets but Brian Daubach?

    He struck out, but it was nice to see that he's still around.

    Brian is up to replace Miguel Cairo who was put on the DL, I expect to see him platoon in 1B with Doug M...however you spell it. I expect Doug to take over at 2nd for Matsui in some close games like what he did for Boston last year.

    I met Brian last week again when Norfolk came through town, that guy was wearing long sleeve in jeans while sweating like crazy walking in the stadium in the 93 degrees heat!

    Brian Daubach

    According to ESPN.com, Daubach is currently in the Mets' minor league organization.

    I agree with what some other people said-- Daubach was a gamer, he never complained and just went out every day and did his job. He was also a pretty good clutch hitter and in his final year in Boston he flashed some leather too.

    But I also believe that Daubach has too much of an uppercut, grooved swing to consistently hit MLB pitching as he gets older. Although he supplied fair power, he always had a low average in Boston. I just don't think he was the right man to have that long-term first base job.

    I've always liked Brian Daubach, and was glad to learn that he (and everyone else who played for the Red Sox at all last season) got a World Series ring. I'd love to see him get more of a chance to hit his stride in the majors.

    Flash - I agree

    Daubach has it all over Millar for professionalism. He just wants to play, he loves the game, he's not full of himself. Everywhere he's been they management and other players really like him. LAst year enough nice things couldn't get said about how great a person he is form the owner of the PawSox on down. When did you ever hear him whine when he wasn't starting a game. A lot a players could take a clue from Daubach - not just Millar.

    But that being said - I think K needs to get over himself and just concentrate on playing.

    I don't have loyalty to many players, they come and go, for me it's the uniform, the team. But I will always root for Dauber and follwo what he does.

    No need for all the research, Flash. Do a quick poll of who Boston fans would want defensively at first base in the ninth inning of the 7th game of the ALCS, with a one run lead to preserve.
    I could be crazy, I suppose, but I think you'd find that the fans that watched Daubach would be unanimous.

    Daubach is twice the defensive player that Millar is (granted, that's not tough). I've always felt that he had more offensive potential than was getting out. I just don't think he ever saw enough consistent at-bats to find it.
    All that being said, it wouldn't be wise to take Millar's bat out of Fenway.
    Ironically, Millar and Daubach first reached the majors in the same year as team mates for the Marlins. From 1998 to 2004 Dauber made 639 appearances, 410 as a starter, while Millar had 731 appearances, 622 in the starting lineup. Overall their fielding numbers are comparable.
    • Millar has a career fielding pct. of .991, Daubach's is .990.
    • Over their careers in that span, Millar made 30 errors, Daubach 31.
    • Although Millar's range factor is two points lower than Daubach's (5.63 to 7.71), it should be noted that Millar's is tempered by the significant amount of time he spent as an outfielder.
    • Last year Millar made 6 errors in 69 appearances at 1B (+3ER in RF), the most in a season in his career. In 2001 he made 2 errors all year.
    • Daubach made 5 errors in 2002 over 60 appearances at 1B, 11 over 106 appearances in 2001, and 8 over 61 appearances in 1999.

    Offensive numbers are a little difficult to compare because Millar has had about 550 more ABs, that said his career BA (from 1998-2004) is .292 to Daubach's .261, Millar has nearly 100 more RBI, 200 more hits, 40 more BBs, but 80 fewer Ks.

    In general, I would put the two fairly even as defensive players, but Millar gets the nod for offense. Still, I much prefer Daubach's presence in the clubhouse to Millar's almost juvenille behavior. I don't hate him, but I wish he were just a little more professional at times.

    I'll agree that Daubach has a more professional attitude but I'll dissent on them as equal players. I love Dauber, but he'd likely be a bench player behind Millar.

    Is this also where Jeff Keppinger is playing?

    If so, then by an amazing coincidence, two of the MLB-caliber people I "know" may be on the same team! The preacher at the church where I minister is Jeff's uncle. Wow.
    Yes, I had an opportunity to meet Jeff too and he look like he's getting bald! Daubach has a great serie at Durham.
