Earned Runs for Troops

There's a little more than usual at stake with Zito's less than stellar start, in case we forgot the Zito ESPN2 interview played during the A's-Orioles series finale.  Curse of the Charity?  Well, maybe, but only if he was secretly donating based on performance during 2004 as well, one would think. Anyway, inspired the following list of ideas for potential A's charities that would be similarly underfunded:

Erubiel Durazo's Stolen Bases for Troops
Marco Scutaro's Home Runs for Troops
Kirk Saarloos' Strikeouts for Troops
Bobby Kielty's At Bats for Troops
Bobby Crosby's Games Played for Troops

now the reaches; need a gifted/creative statistician to determine the totals of some of these:

Scott Hatteberg's First Pitch Swings for Troops
Eric Chavez's Overt Displays of Intensity for Troops
Eric Byrnes' Taking the Correct Path in the Outfield for Troops
Octavio Dotel's 1-2-3 Innings For Troops
Keiichi Yabu's Meaningful Appearances for Troops
Keith Ginter's Web Gems for Troops

keep 'em coming
