All this talk about Blalock not able to hit on the road made me look this up. Can you guess which TEX player put up these mediocre numbers on the road?
81 G, 333 AB, 43 R, 13 HR, 56 RBI, 35 BB, 76 K, .270 BA, .809 OPS
Bottom line. Blalock is way too young to be written off when he has put together more good years than bad. One bad season should not label him as anything.
An OPS of 1.00 at home and .8 on the road is very different from an OPS of .900 at home and .700 on the road. That's equivalent to the difference between Paul Konerko and Shea Hillenbrand.
I don't think anybody is writing him off, but there's no doubt that his value is limited by his inability to hit lefties and his home/road splits.
acutally blalocks ops on the road this year was .611, and .895 at home.
