It would be nice if you could go out and get a bat to fix the problem, but the problem is a team problem, how are you going to fix the core? they can’t hit with any consistency with RISP either, if they could you would not be in these situations where you have to depend on someone that has not played and is cold to come off the bench and save you.
Simply put, until the core gets better, RISP is going to be their Achilles heal the rest of the year.
I would like to see them move some players that are not much help at all, saying the core has to get better does not alter the fact that improvements to the offense can be made around them.

When was the last time he had a walk off hit? Now I am hearing the “Let’s go Pedro” chant which is putting more pressure on him. He seems like a very nervous person, always playing with his chain. Relax Pedro!

Not critical, just an observation.

How long to you carry guys that can’t get it done? The reality is these guys are getting paid to produce and they are not.

But I’ll definitely take the win and 7 innings from Chuck. If the starters keep this up the pen may be able to make it through the season without being dragged off in stretchers by game 150. I was highly critical when they brought back Morton and cast Karstens aside (before they resigned him too). This is why I’m an accountant and not a GM.
