ESPN compared Florida (15-18) to Oakland (19-12)...offensively, not by pitching staffs

Florida has 56 steals to Oakland's 5
Florida has a .267 average to Oakland's .257
Florida and Oakland are practially tied in offensive walks
Florida has 33HRs to Oakland's 36
Florida and Oakland practically tied in runs scored

The difference...Oakland relies more on power hitting and guys who can hit with RISP

speed is great unless you have no one who can advance and score runners


Guys who can't hit with RISP (Hollandsworth, Lee, and unless he hits a Home Run Lowell can be added to this list)

hmmmm - these are the guys who have prospects challenging them (Stokes, Cabrera, and Adrian Gonzalez)..interesting

How can you say Lowell is not clutch?? That has been his forte throughout his career, and by the end of the year this season will be no different. Lee and Holly, on the other hand, are terrible w/RISP
