The Sox offense is the "Phantom Menace" of the AL Central.

What a sad hitting display, we aren't last in hitting in the league by mistake.
Last in runs and walks also, maybe it wasn't Walker's fault but just that we have a bunch of knuckleheads when it comes to hitting.

Sox hitters would tip their caps to Jar Jar Binks.

So can we maybe conclude it wasn't all Greg Walker's fault after all?

Five base runners in nine innings. I could vomit.

He wasn't the root of the problem, but he was part of the problem.

Some of these guys just can't hit.
Too many of them are ridiculously impatient.
Wise simply cannot hit. He's 35 and has a career obp of .263 and the Sox actually signed this guy and people think he's good or at least passable. He isn't. He's a AAAA player.
Dunn is in a horrible slump.
Flowers - not so far.
Keppinger's a backup.
Gillespie seems to have a solid approach, but it's probably a matter of time before he picks up bad habits from this team.


The pitching has been fantastic.

It has nothing to do with Greg Walker or any other hitting coach for that matter. This explains it for me. I would only add that Dunn's slump is in its third year.

It's hard to believe a player with that OPS has lasted as long as he did, but the Sox keep picking him up again and again keeping him in the league. It seems like they could do better . Yeah, the Buerhle catch in 08 was fantastic but come on.

Wise's catch was in 09 wasn't it?

Dunn isn't in a slump. He's been hitting well over the last week. Flowers drove in all Sox runs in a winning effort last game. Yesterday sucked, but lets be honest with our spite.

Well if by "hitting well" you mean he's got his average up to .143 then you are right.

Flowers by the way is hitting all of .192.

No offense. No defense. How did we ever win twelve games?
