But how can that be? It was preached around here how strikeouts are not that bad. I would argue its when and where the k happens along with frequency. Just can't have a 3 hitter on pace to set MLB records for k's and hope to win too many games. Nell and I both last year begged to get Alex in the 3 hole. IMO it cost us a legit shot at division leaving him there. I hope this year we get contact hitting, especially with RISP.
