Stats people on this board tried to tell people what would happen with low OBP leadoff players, and batting the higher OBP players down in the order would do to the scoring chances for the team. They tried to tell people dating back to as early as April and through out May what the lineup construction of Bakers was doing and going to do, it did and it has done what they were pointing out. Check out Steel, Cyclone, REDMANSRICK, and other's postings, even Stormy was sounding the alarm way back in April and again in May. Even Eradi (spelling ?) had a piece on that.Originally Posted by Cyclone792
Good post, Stormy, and I'll follow that up with something that will make us both sick.
This offense is on pace to score 686 runs ... for the entire season. They're on pace to lose 97 runs of offense this season, a drop of a whopping 12.4 percent from last season.To use the vernacular of my generation: this offense simply blows.
