Toronto, by contrast, is 27th in runs scored. I have to disagree about something being up with him, I think he'll turn around just fine, but the peripherals will not be there. I agree with interchange - when he heats up I'm going to look to move him. Somewhere Frank Thomas is laughing his ass off.
The Sox and Rangers are over-achieving offensively. Where would the Sox be w/o Quentin right now? The same for the Rangers w/Bradley+Hamilton. What's the common thread amongst them? They're catalysts. What was Rios supposed to be? A catylyst. He isn't catalyzing anything, and he's the most talented player on the Jays, = Jays offense doesn't produce.
I agree with all that Rios will eventually put up some numbers, and when he does he needs to be moved, because in light of his performance of late you just can't buy that what he did in '06-'07 is "the norm"....
Talk about Pittsburgh having a good offense. Come on! Even if they do, Bay has been carrying that team for years.

I think its time that we start acknowledging the numbers for this year. There is a certain point in every season that preconceived notions formulated from previous years go out the window. YES Pittsburgh has a good offense, YES Baltimore may be this good, YES Detroit is not a powerhouse, etc. You can no longer say the numbers from this year don't matter and "its early" - its not early.
