Well that was underwhelming. There were some champing at the bit that we were going to be facing a White Sox team that has had trouble hitting all year. It did continue for the most part during the series. Aside from Drew Hutchison the starters were not the issue. The lack of hitting was the issue. I guess if you are going to valley in a season of peaks and valleys you do it in a series that didn’t have too much say on the division race. So the boys in blue head off to Kansas City to take on the ummm…boys in blue.
We need the bats to come out for this one as the Royals are pretty good at throwing the ball. Jose Bautista must find a way to get over himself and just get a few hits. Get the confidence going. Over the last 30 games he is hitting a measly .188 with 6 HR and amazingly 23 RBI. Productive yes but still looks like a big opening in the middle of the Blue Jays line-up.
