The bottom line is that very few foresaw this level of hitting ineptitude and this number of injuries.
This team's record would be reversed if not for injuries and historically bad hitting.
I'm not saying replace Paulie, but understand you need to get hitting elsewhere.
Most people saw this happening. Just not many on this board or with the club.
I don't understand your last statement. Historically bad hitting is not a plight that's befallen hitters undeserving. We have a historically bad offense made up of some really bad hitters with poor approaches.
