Why does Kenny Williams want young pitching when we already have a solid young rotation? Danks. Floyd. Peavy. Buehrle. Humber. Plus Zach Stewart waiting in the wings and Chris Sale if need be? What we really need is offense!
In the Major Leagues, we are 22nd in runs scored with 409, 16th in BA with .251, 13th in OBP with .318, and 21st in slugging with a .382 SA. Those stats are average if not below it. I cannot understand why we would trade Quentin, who is second on the team in Hrs (20) and RBI (62). The pitching is doing great. Entering Friday they have the second-best team ERA in July. (2.97!) On the season, they are tenth in the Majors with a 3.66 ERA, 9th in quality starts with 61, 7th in WHIP with 1.27, and 16th in BAA with .254. Those are VERY good numbers. so... why does kenny want pitching instead of offense?
