    Small sample size alert and yatta yatta yatta. The first two columns are 2011 P/PA and 2012 P/PA. Third column is the difference and the fourth column is 2012 OPS.

    Looks like a mixed bag to me. 5 players being more patient. With 8 players being less so. Harris and Mesoraco are way down. Quite possibly these two players are pressing. That is what I would go with.

    Interesting to note that of the 8 players that are exercising less patience so far in 2012, 7 of them are OPSing .554 or less. In other words, they are stinking up the joint. Cozart is the only exception to this rule.

    I don't think much can be made of this but since I went through the trouble of getting the info together and making a spreadsheet, I figured it wouldn't hurt to throw it out there.

    Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.

    Harris and Mesoraco both look quite impatient. Then again, those two have had the fewest PAs of the lot. I actually find this chart encouraging. It seems like something that can change (except possibly for Stubbs) as players relax. Then hopefully the offense will pick up.
