Second half slumps

Since the ASB:

Pena .203/.235/,344
Tucker .173/.232/.288
Meyers .200/.238/.325
Gurriel .242/.277/.339

You can’t trade your way out of most of your regular contributors sucking.

Not to mention Alvarez in the last week+:


It’s a miracle they’ve won a game.

Also, let’s put this is perspective:

The Pirates just released Jake Marisnick, who was hitting .234/.272/.390

For the season, Astros CF have hit .203/.263/.345

A guy who would be a clear upgrade in CF was just released by the freaking Pirates

If there were a spot on the 40-man, I would happily pick up Jake and send Meyers down.

While that’s true, let’s be clear why this team sucks offensively. It’s not because they’re got getting production from C or CF, it’s because they’re not getting it from 1B, 3B, LF, and RF. Mostly not 1B and 3B, who also hit in the prime RBI spots. Bregman and Gurriel kill this offense.

Bregman and Tucker have pretty much pulled even
