I'm still worried about Polanco. His OPS is down all the way to .591 with an OBP of .295 and he's still batting 2nd. I wonder what it will take for Leyland to move him down with Polanco's empty batting average in such a crucial spot. I'm still assuming that his back has affected his power.
Maybe that's because the guy in front of him RARELY gets on base and makes weak contact that often results in either a double play or a fielder's choice? Pudge is hitting .323 with a .382 OBP with runners on and a 5/7 BB/K ratio in 62 ABs. That is DAMN good. Most of his ABs in that situation (about 2/3) are with the runner on first. Remember don't compare Polanco's RBI's to Pudge's. RBI's are influenced by those hitting in front of you. Pudge has to drive somebody in, so if a certain #2 hitter was getting on base more than 30% of the time, maybe Pudge would have more RBIs? Polanco's line with runners on? .244 AVG and a .273 OBP with no walks and 2 K's in 41 ABsDannomyte wrote:Hell, Leyland has stuck with Pudge at #3 in the order and he only has 3 RBI more than Polanco. Sure Pudge is hitting over .300 but who would you rather have at the plate with guys on??
