David Ross Confuses Me

Posted by Matt on July 23, 2007


Just a quick note (a liveblog if you will) as I am watching the Cincinnati Reds versus the National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers and the Redlegs are up 1-0 with 2-outs in the bottom of the 3rd-inning.

How are the Reds up, you might ask?  A David Ross solo home run, his 15th home run of the season.

How in the world can a catcher have 15 home runs through 100 games and still be batting .190?!?!?!  I honestly do not understand this guy, what a joke.  If you make good enough contact to hit a home run 15 times, you ought to be able to make good enough contact to get a single 20 times out of 100.

    Put Andruw Jones in this same category.

    24 HR’s with a .224 BA.

    The BA is slightly better than Ross, but he has 9 more HR’s.

    Soooo, just as you asked, how can someone make good enough contact to hit 24 HR’s and not even average getting a hit out of every 4 tries?

    In a later article I extracted Ross’s homeruns from his batting average…it came out to be like .095 or something…pretty damn sad.
