What should be painfully obvious to anyone who has watched the first seven games is that the offense is in sharp need of an upgrade. WHile the starting pitching has ranged between god-awful and outstanding, the offense has been Home Run Or Nuthin'. I only have confidence in the middle 4 in the order, and three of those are batting in the wrong spots. The lineup should be: New Leadoff, New #2, Lee, Sosa, Alou, A-Ram. And you can take Patterson, Gonzalez, Walker, and Grudz and trade them for the jock straps of Vidro (.930 OPS in 2004) and Beltran.
At 3-4, the team is probably 2 games behind where we all expected to see them. That said, this was supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. They better pound Pittsburgh tomorrow and Thursday or else it may be time to analyze the Bears' draft.
This blog may be published from a new location very soon. No, the URL will be the same, rather the typist may be relocating. Stay tuned!
