At least the Rockies are chucked full of talent. Holliday, Atkins, and Tulo (once he's back) are better than anyone the Jays have. Doesn't Thomas have more homers than anyone on the Jays right now?

I know its a different kind of let down, but the Braves have lost 19 one-run games this year ( I counted). They're a good hitting team, but COME ON!
I gruntle the disgruntled.

I'd go with the Nats. I think they are 2nd last in the majors in runs scored and last in slugging.

Also, their lineup tonight looked like this:

Guzman
Dukes
Milledge
Flores
Young
Belliard
Pena
Willie Harris?
P

In that lineup, I count 3 solid starters (Dmitri, Guzman, and I guess Flores because he's hit well so far), a bench guy ( Belliard), and 2 good prospects who could be in AAA right now on a good team (Dukes + Milledge). That bottom 3 is just putrid though. Wily Mo and Harris start in a major league lineup? I'm not sure they could make a lot of AAA lineups..

Taking a close second is the Mariners. I'm surprised nobody's argued for them yet. Although, their lineup at least has some guys who have been decent major leaguers before

The M's are right up there in the top 2 or 3 of the worst hitting teams. They've had freakin' Jose Vidro batting third, they have absolutely no pop in the lineup and they're going to get rid of several of the players soon.

Why don't we just strike out then ground into a DP. Leadoff triple in bottom 9th of a tied game? O why don't we just K 3 times and hope for a homerun next time. :-P

Hey, you can blame the GM or whoever it is for dropping the Big Hurt. Granted, he GOT hurt but that guy could've at least knocked a few more Jays in. Oh well... good luck with those Orioles down there in the standings!

I just can't believe the NL champs have gone to the slumps again. But yea Padres are the worst. I read a stat that they the worst runs per game at around 3.2

i'd say its a race between the nationals and the padres.

as for the GDP complaint, toronto has in fact had the most, but boston is 2nd, being 8 back.

florida has the best ab/hr at 23.3. SD has 39.0, TOR 49.0, and MIN 55.5 8-o
