Vaughn now a whopping 38 OPS points ahead of Benintendi.....he of the no power Benintendi's....

Crazy we have a 1-2 punch with no homers and it’s almost June, a number 4 hitter that hasn’t homered since the first week, and then minimal power at a few other spots.

It takes a special kind of incompetence to draft top 5 in back to back years and manage to dig up two below replacement level players.

Especially when they were supposedly as maxed out as possible and able to contribute quickly.

team hasn't really looked good offensively for 2 weeks.

 

a couple big hits sprinkled in with nothing.

 

same ol same ol.... don't take walks.. don't swing at strikes.

Robert and Burger cooling off a bit has exposed how bad the others have been.

Who did we miss out on in the 2019 draft? Anthony Volpe?

Nice to see Crochet take a second inning. That said, issues vs. LHS has so far worsened with Abreu gone, and Benintendi isn't helping much as they are fifth from last vs. RHP. Perhaps an actual hitter and RF like Conforto would have helped far better than Flea.

Let's face it, a RH playoff rotation of Faedo, Gaddis, Hunter Brown and JP France likely beats the Sox 3 of 4. Sadly, they will be facing much tougher RHS if they make the playoffs.

  • 2023 Batters vs. RHP 26th .682  and LHP 16th .736 OPS
  • 2022 Batters vs. RHP 18th .698 and LHP 7th .767 OPS
  • 2021 Batters vs. RHP 7th .758  and LHP 6th .775 OPS
  • 2020 Batters vs. RHP 8th .779 and LHP 2nd .887 OPS
