And dont say Ramirez or Damon because both, as I pointed out when they signed, are washed up bums.
Ramirez is one of the best hitters baseball has seen since he entered the league, and his BA was .298 in what was an "off" year 2010. Furthermore, his OBP blew any of our players out of the water. I'm not huge on Damon at 7 mil, but to say we have no real bats is pretty ridiculous. Plus, we're supposed to be a small ball team, for the most part. To have success, we need solid pitching, good defense, and smart hitting. The guys just need to put good swings on the ball and get on base, and we'll grind away. This team doesn't need to crush homers to win.
Derek Shelton is a disgrace to baseball and a massive hindrance to our offense, so at this point we can only hope the players smarten up at the plate.
