Tabata has been useless since his injury.


Since May 20th, Tabata has hit safely in 7 of 8 games, hitting .367, and an onbase % of .457...

It wasnt the injury it was hitting 2nd...He has an OPS of .844 batting leadoff.


Well, at least we know he's our leadoff guy then.

It's major league baseball. They play 162 games, and some of them are going to be complete stinkers. As long they're far between, I'm not going to worry about another 100+ loss season. I actually have a good feeling they're going to win today.

Offensively, they are not far between. It's rare to see this team really perform at even an average level this season. They have no power whatsoever. They have no timely hitting whatsoever. They're dreadful at simply making contact. Paul Maholm's W/L record is a perfect example of how bad they are.

Hell, if it wasn't for the starting pitching (which has probably overachieved to this point), this team would be just as bad as last year, if not worse.

I disagree. While the hitting has been atrocious, you cannot say the same for the defense and pitching. Most games, those two have been good enough to keep the team in the game. Last night, however, the wheels came off the defense and the bullpen blew a tie ballgame.
