Has anybody noticed that hitting is down fairly significantly from years past? The AL-wide OPS this year is .740, with the previous 5 years all ranging from .755-.776. I'm not statistically savvy enough to put that in any perspective, but I'm using it as a glimmer of hope in light of our offense struggles.
Of course, the Indians are 3rd last, ahead of Baltimore and Seattle, and a whopping .028 behind Oakland, at .678. But still, everybody is hitting worse.
At least we're 4th if you sort alphabetically.
