I know there are a lot of issues with this year's team including the injuries to starting pitching. However, if you look at this team's hitting since 2006, they have consistently gone down in EVERY category. Team Batting Average, On-Base percentage (Huge Drop), Slugging percentage (Huge Drop), OPS (Huge Drop) and Runs Per Game. I know we have some older players but it seems that when guys come here, (Tex, Beltran, Ellsbury, McCann), the production drops like a rock. Even Home Runs are down which was the only bright spot for Kevin Long in the past. I don't know about everybody else, but I think we need some new blood in here to try and help our offense. These guys look lost and if you are going to continue with the same routine, expect the same results. Our Pitching staff has been the only thing holding this team afloat in a lousy division and I think it's time for a new perspective when it comes to the Offense and IMO, Kevin Long's approach has run it's course. Hell, even Granderson is hitting above what he did last year in a non-hitter friendly ballpark.
