Re: 4/19 Miami vs the Reds
I'm no longer buying the "Joey isn't getting anything to hit" argument. He's been pitched around a lot, sure, but he's had a bunch of RBI opportunities also. This is the worst his swing has ever looked. He looks completely lost.
As for the team, this looks like the same roller coaster offense we've seen for a couple years now. You never know if they'll score a dozen or be shut down. Totally unpredictable.
