We are 3-9 over the past couple of weeks, not what we would have liked. Our bats have been awful, but then we've seen some good pitchers. As a group we hit .236/.298/.313.
|Dioner Navarro||He started 11 of the 12 games. Hit .233/.244/.302 with 1 home runs, 5 RBI, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. He hasn't been good. I'm glad Edwin and Adam are back, so Dioner isn't hitting clean up any more.|
|Steve missed some time on the Paternity List (and likely has missed some sleep too). He played in 6 games, starting 3. He hit .091/.167/.091 in 12 PA, with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts. I'd give him a break, it's pretty tough to do anything with a new baby around the house.|
|Jose started 11 of the 12 games. With the bat, he's been terrific. He's hit .367/.404/.429 with 3 doubles, 2 RBI, 3 steals. 1 caught, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. His defense hasn't been as good, though there have been moments. One of the very few up arrows. .|
|Melky started all 12 games. He's been very good, hitting .333/.444/.400 with 3 doubles, 4 RBI, 8 walks and 5 strikeouts. some more power would be ok, but I won't complain. He is even taking walks.|
|Cobly played in all 12 games, starting 11. He hit .244/.320/.378, with 3 doubles, 1 home run, 2 RBI, 5 walks and 16 strikeouts. Compared to most of our guys, that wasn't a terrible couple of weeks.|
|Jose Bautista||Bautista started all 12 games. He hit .298/.370/.489 with 3 doubles, 2 home runs, 9 RBI, 6 walks and 10 strikeouts. It feels like he's been in a slump but if those numbers are a slump we are pretty lucky.|
|He played in 11 games, starting 9. Hit .206/.270/.235 with 1 double, 0 RBI, 3 walks, 6 k. I like him a lot, but he's gotta hit better than that.|
|Played in 11 games, starting 6. He hit .174/.240/.304 with 1 home run, 1 RBI, 3 steals, 2 walks and 11 strikeouts. I love his glove, but he's gotta hit better.|
|He's played in 10 games, starting 7. He his .065/.121/.097 with 1 double, 0 RBI, 2 walks, 11 strikeouts in 33 PA. He had so many chances to be hero in that long extra inning game. He's been terrible.|
|Josh played in 5 games, starting 3. Hit .071/.133/.071 with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. It is tough to hit when you play so little but then, that's his job.
||He played in 9 games, starting 4. He hit .125/.233/.167, 1 double, 5 RBI, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. He's was so good when we first got him. Hopefully he'll get it back.|
