Since we've played basically one month now, I went through and calculated what it would take for a few of our hitters to reach the numbers they hit last year. [Note: this assumes the player reaches the same number of plate appearances]
Lofton .312/.369/.416 (522 PA)
Teixeira .293/.377/.547 (727 PA)
Catalanotto .324/.397/.482 (499 PA)
Young .333/.379/.482 (748 PA)
Not impossible, but I think it goes to show that just because we expect these guys to start hitting, the hole they've dug is going to make it quite difficult to get to what they've done in the past.
