Why brook jacoby is untouchable to some is beyond me. I don't care how many 15-0 outbursts from this "offense" skew the numbers, the fact remains that this team doesn't really hit when it has to. And that's not a problem confined to the last two series. They haven't hit all month, they strike out far too much, they don't hit with RISP, they have black holes at multiple positions (including LF, SS, C and a lot of time RF), the bench is comically inept, the cupboard is bare in louisville ... Honestly. Put down the kool aid. There are no series with the Astros any time soon to get healthy on.
