re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
I don't think they have strong enough Bats. They have guys that get on base. Not many to drive them in. They are going to leave a lot of runners on base. Unless of course Stanton hits like 400 with RISB.
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.
