Fair enough. Different beasts, I think. hitting is uber important, and we're not.

I'm not the one defending average here.

I don't think it would work like that at all.

This is almost the entire story in regards to the offense.

That being said, the A's average is only down .007 in the second half vs the first.

It's actually far lower than BB or SLG

He is, but it's kinda split hairs.

I agree with this, it's reminiscent of A-Rod swiping that one asshole's glove.

Cause that's 8 innings of bad defense and no hitting instead of just 8 innings of no hitting.

Good lord that ground ball "basehit" by Altuve was like nine inches from Callaspo.

If his babymaking is anything like his hitting, it's gonna take a lot more than that.

It's kind of amazing, a lot of the times he looks like he's sacrificing power for contact

Well in fairness, he was only on the roster cause of the rule five thing.

Believing in Hammel and wanting to have your top four go against your heated rival are not mutually exclusive.

Cespedes isn't really a great defender either. Passable and frankly capable of being amazing, but not that great.

I don't know that anyone is arguing things are perfect, it's just nonsensical to ignore the first half of the season too.
