What exactly about that leads you to believe we won't be hitting for long besides you just thinking it with no evidence to back up your claim??? Most teams who aren't hitting HR's aren't scoring so that was a "genius" statement in itself. Good call
If you really want an answer, I'll tell you why I believe the offense won't be there much longer///
1) I followed this team last year. Darn near everybody is performing better this year than last. I sure hope it continues, but I'm skeptical
2) This team has been shut out A LOT in the last month. It appears that they are tending toward last year's performance.
3) Depth...When your #1 pinch hitter available is Miguel Cairo or a rookie, let's just say that I'm not brimming with confidence.
