Bad overall, relative to payroll, and this isn't adjusted for how good a hitters park we have even, is it?

No adjustment, and you are exactly right. We have basically hit like a mid-market baseball club payroll with a major-market payroll.

Walker has been the Sox hitting coach since 2003, and since then, here are the White Sox rankings in runs scored in the AL:

 

2003: 791 runs (8th in the AL)

2004: 865 (3rd in the AL)

2005: 741 (9th in the AL)

2006: 868 (4rd in the AL)

2007: 693 (14th and dead last in the AL)

2008: 811 (5th in the AL)

2009: 724 (12th in the AL)

2010: 752 (7th in the AL)

2011: 389 (10th in the AL, on pace for 650 runs)

 

It started out well, but has been bad from 2007 on (with 2008 a good year).

Line ups have something to do with it. BTW, the great Rudy Jaramillo, the guy who would make every White Sox hitter a HOFer has the Cubs 9th in the NL in runs.

 

Don Cooper can do no wrong and here's where the pitchers ERA ranked since 2004 when Walker had his first full season as the hitting coach.

12th-2004

2nd-2005

10th-2006

12th-2007

6th-2008

2nd-2009

8th-2010

6th-2011

What percentage of that major market payroll was spent on hitting as compared to pitching? Always seemed like the Sox had more money invested in arms instead of bats.

But you also have to adjust for those pitching ratings being, from first glance. pedestrian.

 

Same thing with the hitting...playing half the games at USCF. If you do the park-adjusted ratings (baseball-reference), you'll come up with a much different set of comparisons.

Not really. Sox pitchers have pitched better at home than on the road.

This offense is freaking awful. Half the starting lineup doesn't even hit the ball hard enough to score someone from first on a single because outfielders can play so many of our guys so shallow.

Well I was curious about park adjustments so here you go:

 

wRC+ & AL rank from FanGraphs

2003 - 101 6th

2004 - 100 8th

2005 - 94 10th

2006 - 102 4th

2007 - 85 13th

2008 - 101 7th

2009 - 90 12th

2010 - 100 8th

2011 - 90 11th

 

2008 offense was very average really

Take away his two starts vs the White Sox and he still somehow has an ERA of 3.77

I'm honestly convinced that even if Ozzie AND Kenny are fired after this season, Greg Walker will somehow be our hitting coach in 2012. He's bulletproof!

If this front office (at least the coaching staff) isn't completely overhauled I'll probably get thrown out of Camelback Ranch at least 3 times this spring. I'll be the biggest asshole out there...guaranteed!

I'm planning to be there too and I'd give you a run for your money.

Ranger talking about Beckham having to work on his swing in the offseason....can't do it now.

 

So that's Dunn, Rios, and Beckham that have offseason projects.

 

This team is a joke from top to bottom.

I would have to question why you would go there since the tickets are over priced there as well. Best to catch them on the road.

I'm calling bulls*** on the Ranger. Go take some batting practice in a cage for a few hours.
