What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
The production from #7 batting order, was abysmal in 2010.I won't go through the numbers, seeing most will do it anyway.This is a BIG set up position... how to improve the rally kill hole?
Well, Arias, Traenor, Molina, Smoak and Cantu took up 2/3s of the PAs in the 7 hole
Mitch and Murphy took most of the rest and they just hit like crap in that slot.
just put Hamilton in the 7 hole lol
I would think replacing Davis/Smoak with Moreland solves that problem right out. Now, Yorvit and Borbon will have to hit to keep 8/9 from being Black Holes.
I think Wash may have Young slotted in 7th
03APR~In TODAY's view, the "Black Hole 7th" is certainly pertinent, with all the big bats showing muscle.
What I should have said is; "Wash should have Young slotted at 7th" . Certainly NOT 5th, which is a great slot for Nelli's RBI Bat.
As much as I'm rooting for him still, CD was a humongous black hole there for a lot of the year, and literally not having a catcher who could hit his own weight sucked big time too. Moreland brought a lesser but more than adequate glove, but a huge huge OBP bump at 1b.... Torrealba/Napoli is a HUGE upgrade at C, and it's looking like Borbon is finding his groove.
That black hole is .428 with 3 runs, 3 rbi a HR and a walk as of TODAY.
Stick to writing limericks, chief...
In fairness, Bengie Molina could have posted solid offensive #s for a Catcher and still not hit his own weight.
On an unrelated note, Mike Napoli's forearms look like thigh muscles. Dude is built.
Homee~ thick as usual. I guess you think I might have missed those stats you Googled? Sure WE filled it. T'was/is the point of the story. Your usual 2 cents are always expected and welcomed. See ya on the field.
