After tonight we'll be 2nd in the NL in runs scored. Does anyone still think we have a poor hitting team?

We have a very talented offense.. just need to Hanley back in the lead off spot.. which i suspect we will do when Jake is back.

I'd like to say again, wouldnt mind leading off boone while jake is hurting if we insist on leading off hanley.


But to say we are a "poor hitting team" is ludicrous.

Well, we're certainly not the second best offense in the league, and we're not as good as the numbers indicate. That's all.

We feature two dead-weight spots in CF and C and we have a feast or famine microcosm of the offense in Dan Uggla.

Do we have the best hitting infield in the national league (catcher excluded) arguably, but Hermida's going to have to turn into the player we all expect him to be and we're going to have to do something for centerfield for me to believe this is a good/great offense.

And after tonight we'll have 5 players (qualified players) with OPSes over .850. I may be wrong but I don't think there will be any other NL team with 3 or more. You have to look at the entire team and not only at the holes.

We run it up on poor pitching.

Doesn't every good team though?

He's freefalling hitting 3rd. I don't think he's freefalling because of the move.. just mentioning it.

The Reggie at lead-off experiment needs to end ASAP, he needs to bat 8th

I think the Marlins will be 10-5 since the move

Hate all you want, but he got on base twice tonight

I'd rather know what our standing in mode runs scored is, rather then total or average per game. Totals and averages doesn't mean much.

Ramp,
I'm not just hating, lets remember one of the trips to 1st was a Hit by Pitch

The guy looks lost out there.

We have 3 back to back black holes on the line up, 8-9- and now 1st

Absolutely.

(Welcome back, BTW)

But, I did a really half assed statistical survey of our team a while ago when some were ready to crown us with the Mets and found that while we averaged the same number of runs, we equaled or surpassed our average number in less than half our games while the Mets equaled or surpassed their average runs scored in more than half their games.

So, my reasonable conclusion was that our mean was not truly representative of our offensive ability.

(Off the top of my head, I think the average was 5.5 runs, we scored less than 5 17 times, more than 5 8 times and more that 11 twice or three times, but under 3 4 or 5 times).

With the frequency really all over the place, I had no qualms calling it an inconsistent offense that feasts on bad pitching. Yes good teams run it up on bad pitching, but good teams also beat good pitching.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we haven't beaten any of the big NL arms this year.

Plus, there's also the matter of holding the modern baseball record for most times being no hit into the 5th inning in the team's first 30 games.

And if Lily had not been daydreaming about David Hasselhoff he probably would of beat Abercrombie to 1st...

Reggie was well out of the box before Lily even broke towards 1st.

Hate all you want, but he got on base twice tonight

The first time was because Lilly did a bad job on defense and didn't run to the bag.

The second time, he was likely hit on purpose because the Marlins were running up the score.

He has a .286 OBP in the lead off spot this year, including tonight's game.
