RP is killing me today! Good thing I'm sitting on the pot instead of at my desk right now.
We weren't a great hitting team last year, probably high average. Some of our best most consistent hitters have moved on. We're relying on organic improvement, and unproven Division one players to improve us for the most part.
Pitching is not overrated, but for some here hitting is undervalued.
The construction might be a distraction. That being said, In Robe, We Trust!
Being clutch is far more important than the numbers, with our pitching staff getting hits when we need it is the most important thing...not putting up gaudy numbers.
Sensley hit .308 in 38 games overall, led the Alaska league in home runs (6) and slugging percentage (.531), and tied for first in extra base hits (16). He was second in the league in RBIs (27) and (OPS) on-base-slugging percentage (.915). He also stole seven bases.
Last year we had one player with OPS % over .900, Kyle Clement. OB% + SLG % = OPS. If those two can hit over .900 OPS in the middle of the order, spring and summer could be very sweet.
Frankly how clutch can you be when you don't know in the runs. We did not do that in a lot of games last two seasons.
