A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Our Offense

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 18, 2013

Finding something to complain about in this 2013 season has been a challenge for me. Maybe I’ve been softened a little by yet another World Series win. Maybe I’m just getting old and the little things don’t bother me as much as they used to. That’s not it, little things piss me off more than ever. I have greatly enjoyed all of these comebacks that the Giants are pulling off seemingly daily. Though it’s not always resulting in a win, we’re only 15 games into the season so I have still have a high tolerance for ultimate failure as long as there are positives to be gleaned along the way.

So basically, I’ve got nothing today.

Here’s how our offense is performing at each spot in the line up:



I find this fairly interesting. Our 4-5-6-7 hitters aren’t hitting. Still, I love our 4-5-6-7 hitters so I’m not looking for a rant, just noticing something. Then you get the 8 spot and 9 spot significantly outperforming their expected production. I’m not sure if pinch hits are included in the 9 spot. But regardless, .268 is more than acceptable from the 9 hole. As is the .345 we’re getting from the 8 hole (almost exclusively Crawford).

But even with the limpness of the 4-5-6-7 guys, our offense is still solid:



Being 13th in HR’s isn’t gonna fly for the entire year. Or will it? Of course we all remember our HR pro(?)duction from 2012:



But I don’t think trailing the field in HR’s every year is the blueprint for “How to Win a World Series”.

If the 4-5-6-7 spots in the LU get on track, this offense is really going to be fun to watch.

    Now the outrage, after her years of perky service, that Cammie doesn’t get one 😉

    Hey, the Giants are still on pace to win 90!

      Just think, a few days ago, all the Giants needed to do was play 13 games above 500 for the rest of the season to win 90.

    9-7 is a good omen. Same record they had in 2010 and last yr after 16 games.

    Hey, BF, on this thing from Culliver, I’ve brought in an expert for a translation of what he said…

    The front-office people who were in charge of rigging the AS game voting last year will get rings, Why not Amy? Because she’s not on the payroll? Actually, that make some sense. The beat writers don’t get rings. The real baseball journalists don’t. Amy G, the great objective journalist, doesn’t. “Can you tell us, Amy, are you proud to be considered for a WS ring for just doing a pretty pedestrian job?” “Well, yes, I am really grateful for those tweets, but I’m a . . . .”
