It seems our hitters haven't been taking advantage of the thin air. We have not hit very well, especially two critical players we MUST have production from.
Bruce has had a poor spring (yes, he has 4 HR's, but that's about it)with his average around .220 and quite a few K's. Ludwick has been dreadful, considering he has had more at bats than anyone except Heisey. Only 2 rbi's for Luddy and 1 walk in about 50 ab's. 1 walk? He is swinging and missing a lot.
Many K's. Phillips hasn't been very good at all since he's been back from the WBC. Yes, I am ranting about our lack of hitting already. I see it as our biggest problem this year. IMHO, Ludwick is not a #4 hitter.
