Bull ----- Cr.ap!
The bench isnt the problem - its the 5-9 hitters that cant drive in any runs.
I dont care what Damon or Hafners average is over the past month, those guys keep getting meaningless hits or walks when there is nobody on base - not when it matters.
"Duncan has 1 more homerun against right handed pitching then he does left handed pitching so where is he doing all that more "mashing"?????"
You should compare the at bat totals. Plus look at doubles.
"those guys keep getting meaningless hits or walks when there is nobody on base - not when it matters."
You're going to try to pull this again? Here's a free refresher.
July 13 - Indians Win 1-0, Hafner 1 RBIMay 23 - Indians Win 4-2, Hafner 2 RBIsMay 22 - Indians Win 5-3, Hafner 2 RBIsMay 14 - Indians Win 5-4, Hafner 1 RBIApril 17 - Indians Win 9-8, Hafner 1 RBI
Wait, wait, wait...before you say it. I care.
Why do you keeping ignoring other important stats?
.230 batting average, .341 B.A., .459 SLG, Averaging 1 home run every 18.5 at bats. That is good.
Depends on how you define the size of a "small sample"
Besides, career-wise Shelly hits lefties better.
You switched topics fast, can't wait to see that in the debates this fall.
If you look closely, nothing about my post said anything about the team as a whole. Just your ignorant statement that Hafner 'cannot [get hits] when it matters'
Duncan has always hit lefties better when he comes off the bench but when he gets 3 or 4 at bats a game he isn't as successful.
Sample size is determined when someone uses a small sample size to try to get a point across it is considered too small of a sample but if Adaree uses a small sample size it is okay..... lol
oh im sorry...
Hey everyone, hafner has 7 meaningful RBI's this year!!!!!
Can I hear a round of applause :)
Once again, I will remind you of your original statement.
"Hafner gets hits and walks when they dont matter."
My argument is not Hafner is a good player, my argument proves that he has got RBI "when they matter." If you read over those 5 games, you will see that. Thus adding 5 potential wins to the Indians overall record.
