You think people around here are excusing the players?

Yeah, I was thinking the club would wait until Super Two.

It's concentrated in the farm, which should start paying dividends this season.

There's no stat that will show anything other than terrible performance by the team.

Right, that's why BABIP is not especially useful for players with a brief history.

It's always worth remembering how drastically Singleton was outperforming older peers up to last year.

It's fine to feel that way. I wouldn't say you have a point, given that there is clear evidence against your position.

No one's saying Carter is even an average contact hitter.

His contact skills definitely are poor. There is no doubt about that.

Chances are, he will be top 3. He was the second best hitter on the team last year by a whole lot.

I don't see how it's debatable that most people don't understand advanced statistics, which is what I said.

Still surprised so many thought he was only a top first base prospect by default.
