Just to follow up on a comment from the Jim Reeves column from today:
That's right. Here the Rangers were, having just lost two games in the last week in which they scored 10 runs, and Hicks was pointing out his team's failures with the bases loaded and how the Rangers just don't score much unless they hit a home run.
Rangers overall: .269/.331/.471
Rangers w/RISP: .272/.344/.460
Rangers with bases loaded: .333/.361/.545
So, in actuality, the Rangers are doing better in the bases loaded situations Hicks is carping about, and better with RISP, than overall.
Keep talking, Tommy Boy...
