I personally hope Bruce stops hitting singles to the opposite field, stops striking out 34% of the time, and actually starts driving balls.
He has a .653 OPS with RISP this year, compared to a .798 RISP in his career. He's been a worse hitter in just about all situations this year than over the course of his career. To imply he's doing anything better as a hitter is incorrect. He's been a worse hitter in every situation.
To make a conclusion that he's a better situational hitter this year is simply not true. There is nothing to back that up. It's not like anybody can sit here and say Bruce has been unlucky this year, his BABIP is north of .400. He's simply just not hitting for any power and is striking out a ton.
I'm not attacking you. I'm just pointing out that you excel at constructing straw men. So far, you've done nothing but argue against points that I've never made. The funny thing is, I'm honestly not sure whether you're doing it on purpose or not. In any event, since we're obviously not communicating, I'm done. I hope you've enjoyed arguing with yourself.
