    Power Outage Sox

    Corrected a game, this is now correct.


    When Sox hits a home run or more: 18-21
    When Sox hits 1 home run only: 11-17, Team had a stretch where when it homered once it lost 11 straight (7 during the 10-game losing streak)
    When Sox hits 2 home runs: 7-3
    When Sox hits 3 home runs: 1-0 (yes, just once all year)

    When Sox don't hit a home run: 14-17

    When David Ortiz hits a home run: 10-3....now there you go.

    Re: Power Outage Sox

    I realize he's in a bit of an upswing, but again, when you are sitting in the top 4 of OPS among AL Outfielders last year (mind-boggling still to me), and you see him just look horrendous for 2 months, including a drop to the minors, you realize the real Daniel Nava is not the 2013 version. He is part of the powerless crew. They carry Bradley, Pedroia, Holt, Herrera, Victorino, Carp. Meanwhile, Ross and Napoli and AJ not hitting for power either. It's Ortiz or bust.

    27 Ks, 22 Hits....597 OPS..123 plate appearances...not a good sample size some would argue...I'll thank him for his service in 2013 and the 31-year-old wunderkind can now exit the roster for a guy who can hit for power.

    I agree. His OBP is what made him what he was last year and is supposedly his strong suit. He drew 3 walks the other night to give him just 11 all year. He has 4 RBI all year, 2 on solo home runs.

    Re: Power Outage Sox

    2 strikeouts to go with the 3 walks, he got a .600 OBP that game and basically did nothing at the plate. Reached 3 times on a team void of RBI guys.

    Nava and Gomes and Holt...that's the OF...and if you had Bradley for Holt, then it looks even sadder offensively.

    In response to andrewmitch's comment:

    O P S huh?  terrible stat.   OK, his OPS was high because he batted 300 and took more than his share of walks.  That's what's driving the OPS, not the SLG so much.  However, his SLG was decent too not because he put up a lot of XBH's but because a good # of his hits were doubles - in other words I don't think he had more than about 400 AB's and therefore even having 25 doubles and 10+ HR's on the year will give you fairly hefty SLG and therefore, OPS....come on, is he really an OPS guy the way Cabrera and Trout are?



    Of course not.  But an .800 + OPS like he had last year is way above average.

    Trout is a .950 OPS guy and Cabrera is a 1.000 OPS guy...Hall of Famers.

    Re: Power Outage Sox

    1975--OF--Lynn, Evans, Yaz...now that's offense

    1986 OF--Armas (before he got hurt), Rice, Evans...power
    2004--OF-Manny, Damon, Trot...5 hundred times a better offensive OF than 2014.

    O'Leary had some pretty good seasons too, far better than this sad lot. Darren Lewis was a travesty offensively, but a great defender. Sounds like Jackie Bradley.

    In response to andrewmitch's comment:

    which is why OPS can be deceiving and not all OPS are created alike



    Personally I don't think OPS is deceiving.  A .950 OPS guy is an awesome hitter.  A .750 guy is about average.  A .600 guy stinks.

    I remember when I used to argue that the LF spot on Sox was designed for a power hitter--Williams, Yaz, Rice, Manny, Bay.....

    I yearn for Beltre/Youkilis types in the lineup. They used to mash the ball.

    You couldn't go wrong with that argument, when the first 4 guys you named held down the spot for about 65 years...
