    The clowns are this team. No power from any corner position, LF/RF or 1B/3B. 

    A SS and the backup who can not hit lefties. What SS plays against lefties? A guy who hits .194

    I am glad Dunn is not on the team but his power ideally is the #5 we need.  Of course not with Napoli on the same team as that would put 2 players in a row who strike out too much.




    It's not the Ks by Dunn that would sink us, it's his sunken OBP.

    This whole too many Ks argument is getting stale.

    It's about OBP, SLG% and timely hitting- not Ks.

    I'm not trying to minimize our issue vs LHPs. I've been harping on this all season; hoever, I'd rather have a SS hitting 194 vs LHPs than vs RHPs.

    There are 8 MLB teams that have a SS BA vs RHPs below .230. (The Sox are at .294).

    Some other contender numbers:

    KCR .222

    Reds  .226

    Pirates  .229

    TBR  .240

    LAD .246

    STL  .247

    ATL .251

    There are 9 MLB teams with a BA below .218 vs LHPs. Here are some competitive team's numbers atSS vs lefties:

    AZ .196

    STL .207

    ATL .216

    Reds .229

    Maybe there is comfort in knowing others have bigger issues, but we certainly need to do better vs lefties.

    Agreed, unless Pedey gets hurt or needs a day off before Sept call-ups.

    In response to ADG's comment:

    I love the arguments FOR Napoli (moon for example) about how the sample size is relatively small. I would say it's quite large (the last 16 games, 1/2 a month). Over the last 16 games Napoli could be the worst hitter in baseball.  Someone post those numbers, but with a batting average in the .130 range, a SLG average under .200 and no home runs and a 48% K rate, that isn't a small sample size.

    On top of it, he's at his all time K rate, his home runs numbers are way down  and you have a guy who should be platooned with anybody.



    Nap's sample size is almost two seasons worth of poor hitting against lefties.  Whether it's injury related who knows but it has become a trend.  He has really hurt our offense badly this season in a lot of crucial situations which is why I didn't like Salty in our lineup the past two years.  Naps good stats?  Are the real sample size, one before Papi returned and a couple ssmall ones in between.  It would have been a huge mistake giving him a three year deal.
