I actually like this thread.
Now let's get a GM to actually do this.....
Yankees dismal off-season continues...why??
Our payroll is currently $170 million and we are complaining, hilarious!
I agree the team needs to focus more on contact and high BA guys. However you have to have a mix between power and contact which this team doesnt really have now.
It's not about average, it's about timely hitting, of which Gardner hasn't done a ton of. Look at the teams performance as a whole as apposed to just their top players. Giants won it with the worst homerun total and the fifth best average, but their avg was only 04% pts better than the Yanks. The rest of the teams on that list are slugging ball clubs except for maybe St. Louis. Don't underestimate power.
Giants .269 including a juiced up Melky..lol,
St. Louis .271
I am not sold on Greinke, especially for the money he just got. Hell, he wasnt even the ace on the Angels staff. Now he has the pressure to perform with that money. He will be found in a closet hugging his teddy bear in the fetal position when he gets rocked... Lucky he is in the NL...
