I've been thinking: why should this offense really give a crap about getting runs and getting hits?
JimBo spent all off season building this offensive juggernaut (the key parts we can't even use due to injury currently) and like a hypocrite, kept preaching "pitching, pitching, pitching" and yet only got us Odalis Perez. These pitchers aren't going to win us games, not a lot of them anyways. So why should the hitters really spend all that energy when they know the pitcher's they are trying to support are just going to give it back to the other team?
The offense is dead currently, but even still, they wouldn't have any type of half-ass support if they were knocking the hide off the ball.
