When the team is hot, the guy drives in about one run per game; when the team is cold he will go 1-4 with a 2-out single with nobody on, at best.
Over the past 7 games, this team is batting .198 and, coincidentally, we have gone 2-5 over that said period. Low batting averages mean losses. You can toss in war, ops, etc all you want. But if a 3rd baseman and SS cannot hit about a .240 clip consistently, that team will struggle to win games.
