It really hasn't been a fun couple of weeks. We are 4 and 8 over the last 12 games.
The offense has been awful. We've averaged 3.25 runs per game over the 12. The only upside is that Buck and Pat has stopped talking about Kevin Seitzer full time.
|Dioner played in 11 of the 12 games, starting 10 of them. He hit ..211/.250/.395 with 1 double, 2 homers, 4 RBI, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts. Why can't we find a catcher that will take more than one walk a week. He has been a bit of a disappointment.|
|Edwin started 11 of the games before going on the DL. Hit .316/.455/.543, with 2 doubles, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 9 walks and 5 strikeouts. I'm so sad.|
|You know, over the past two weeks his numbers have been pretty good .309/.321/473 with 4 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 2 steals, 1 walk and 7 strikeouts. I'd like more than one walk but, over the two week period, he's been pretty good. His defense hasn't been great, Fangraphs has him at a -5.2 UZR/150, which feels about right. He's made some errors but his .962 fielding average isn't much worse than the league .972 average.|
|Melky started all 12 games, starting 11. Hit .261/.320/.348, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 5 RBI, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts. His batting average has been within 5 points of .300 since June 18th.|
|Played in 4 games, starting 3. Hit .222/.222/.222, 2 singles in 9 at bats. Pretty tough to grade him on 9 at bats...but we do anyway.|
|Steve played in 10 of the games, starting 4. Hit .313/.421/.625, 2 doubles, 1 home run, 1 RBI, 1 steal, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. He hits much better when he can see.|
|Started all 12 games and he's been great. .333/.415/.361 with 1 double, 1 RBI, 4 walks and 8 strikeouts. He's still my favorite replacement level player ever, but I wouldn't mind if he were to do better than replacement.|
|Played in 9 and started 5 of the games, then was sent to Buffalo. He hit .150/.190/.200, with 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 steal, 1 walk and 4 strikeouts.|
|Played in 6 games, starting 5, 16 plate appearances, 1 hit, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. .067/.125/.067. And he's been DFAed.|
