They have some big bats but you have to think about how the majority of them hit. Gincarlo, LoMo, and Gaby are all pop-up or strikeout hitters, which doesn't play to their strength in utilizing Reyes and Bonifacio. Hanley is the only guy who is five-tool hitter that can hit the ball anywhere but we haven't seen that happen since 09.
