    This team is pathetic with runners in scoring postion

    i have never seen a team be this inept with men in scoring position. Sunday we left more men on base than custer lost at his last stand. Most of the time it's with 2 outs or less two it's either a lack of contact or swinging at bad pitches. If they are gonna climb out of this hole they better start hitting with runners in scoring position.

    I made note of this during the last Rockies game.

    They really do squander a lot of opportunities with bad situational hitting. Edwin and Griff seem like they do better with RISP by far.

    castro can do it. He is the man, what an incredible scoop to reacquire Castro, he is a solid veteran who knows how to lay the game. The Dodgers have suffered miserably since Castro's unfortunate departure. Castro is on a carrer year pace, if hekeeps it up, he may surpass the performance of Rafael Santo Domingo

    Why is Batto del Pucko (.161, 2K, 5 LOB) still on this team?

    Castro has numerous strong points, he is able to exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide regularly, he is a member of the correct phylum to play baseball, and the supreme compliment of course , is his scrappiness factor

    Wow... I wonder who the leading candidate for RedsZone whipping boy is?

    And yet, at the risk of saying something unpopular that is nonetheless true, we don't pay Castro to hit or even play regularly. Every team has a glove guy on the bench who can cover SS. Castro's ours.

    I'm much more concerned with the other guys in the lineup, who ARE paid to do that.

    BA does not correlate as stongly to scoring runs as SLG, but you have to do better than .229 (mid-game update)

    The problem is, Castro is not that good with the glove.

    castro is great, he should be enshrined in the OPS Hallof Fame. His puissance should be discussed for eons, along with the likes of Jay Ward and Mike Grace and even, although it probably a stretch, Len Boehmer

    I blame Adam Dunn. It all falls squarely on his shoulders.
