I'm out of the pissed off phase. That was wednesday. This is going to happen when our offense just can't get it done. Stanton and hanley are shells of themselves. If they don't step up and have great years we aren't going anywhere. The pitching is much improved this year. Defense is better.

Poor JJ. Besides Choate the pen blew tonight.

 

Hanley and Stanton need to get it going. I hate to pick on a guys stance because you can look at all sorts of odd batting stances where guys have had success but I feel Stanton's open stance with no leg kick is hurting him. Last year he was slightly open then had a slight leg kick where he closed himself up and hit better.

Wasn't that Hanley's problem no more than a week ago but he is still helter skelter at the plate.

Yeah but Hanley was way more open than Stanton and had a leg kick. IIRC Hanley has hit well with a slightly open stance as well as a closed one. With the closed stance he hit for a high average but less power while when he opened up he had some more pop.

 

I really feel like that slight leg kick was Stanton's timing mechanism and now he is having trouble timing pitches. He swing through so many pitches.

The team should take a field trip or something.

 

Also I just remembered helms sh*tty range with 2 outs.

 

 

We really need to find an everyday guy for 3rd. Having to start Dobbs and then use Helms with Boni already in the outfield is hurting us.

You can't win them all but you hate to lose them like this especially since JJ is having flashbacks from last year. JJ needs to let the new guys know that when he is in the game, you don't blow games. Hanley needs a Benching and an ass whooping for good measure.

 

I will give Helms props for the double that scored the 2 runs.
