New T.R. Sullivan mailbag up


T.R. Sullivan has a new mailbag up, and it includes a question about whether "Neftali Perez" will be traded, which amused me.

There's also some talk about Nelson Cruz, with Sullivan saying that his OPS and defense per the advanced defensive stats were good, but that "the Rangers still need more than 76 RBIs out of him."

Of course, when you only have 133 plate appearances with runners in scoring position, because you are hitting 5th or 6th or 7th behind guys that hit for power and don't get on base, and you get benched for random stretches because David Murphy and Marlon Byrd are too valuable to take out of the lineup, you aren't going to rack up a ton of RBIs.
