A note on the Ranger offense and this road trip

New, comments

To follow up on a post I made earlier...

The problem isn't the offense. Not really. Even on this road trip.

The Rangers played seven games in two of the most pitcher-friendly parks in baseball over the past week.

They put up a .249/.326/.354 line in that stretch.

The average A.L. road team this season has put up a .246/.315/.373 line -- little worse OBP, little better slugging.

Overall, given the parks they played in, the Rangers performed about average last week, offensively.

Now, you want the Texas offense to be better than just average on the road, no question.

But to say that the Rangers lost 5 of 7 on this road trip because the offense was terrible is simply wrong.
