Tom Brennan - OLD MAN HITTING TRACKER VOL. 2
I wrote the other day that baseball is a young man's game.
And that our 2 active old guys, Curtis Granderson and Jose Reyes, have showed the clock may be running out on them.
I noted their combined 2017 numbers thru 15 games were:
13 for 104 (.125), 7 runs, 4 RBIs, .200 OBP, 30 Ks, 0 steals.
I CONCLUDED THE #'S SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.
True to form, in game 16 on Thursday night, April 20, the Mets stuck with their two elder gents, figuring every game should be Old Timers Day, I suppose.
So how did they do, in yet another close, disappointing loss?
Pretty poorly, thanks for asking: they were 1 for 9, with a run. Grandy is now hitting .143, Reyes .105, which leaves them at # 182 and # 188 out of 191 qualified major league hitters.
14 for 113 (.124), 8 runs, 4 RBIs, .193 OBP, 30 K, 1 steal.
Don't get me wrong...I like both of these guys. It's just that management needs to consider the utter ineptness of these 2 currently, & that it's hard winning games playing 7 against 9.
So until this changes, I may run this update daily. Too old to rock and roll, until proven otherwise.
