Tampa Bay Devil Rays 2014-15 Team Review

Tampa Bay Devil Rays are not stinging the ball! 2014-15 Team Review Ranked 19nth in hitting.247 avg./ .367 slugging The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are the only team that does have a hitter who hit over .270 with 15  home runs. The usual MLB team at least has 2 and we have said that 4 is a preferable number to build a championship offense.The Rays only have 4 hitters that hit .250-.265 and above and around 10 homers. Evan Longeria is probably one of their better hitters but he only hit .253 with his 22 homers. Most of the line [...]

Texas Rangers 2014-15 Team Review

Texas Rangers in Review 2014-2015 Season Hitting Coach Dave Magadan Is entering his second season with the Texas Rangers after being hired on Oct. 19, 2012. Magadan, the club's fifth different hitting coach since the start of the 2009 campaign. This is the third different major league club he has coached. He was also hitting coach for the Red Sox (2007-12) and Padres (2003-June 15, 2006).This is a peculiar situation that we find with hitting coaches like Dave Magadan. As far as hitting coaches go he has been the "wrecking ball" to many talented teams. He started with the Padres [...]

Baltimore Orioles 2014-15 Team Review

Baltimore Orioles in Trouble without Nelson Cruz? Well the Baltimore Orioles have been a solid hitting ball club the last 2 years Baltimore Orioles have been in the top 10 in hitting. They are a homerun hitting team who are prone to slump a bit throughout the year and have issues with on base percentage. All in all, their power has made up for any weakness's and they were one playoff series away from going to the World Series. The O's hit .256/.422  which ranks them ninth in 2014. They are one of the few teams in the whole league who [...]

New York Mets 2014-2015 Team Review

NY Mets Team Review 2014-15 Season Prediction The New York Mets hit .239 and slugged .364 in 2014 and ended up 28th in the league. Prior to that the Mets were 19th the last 2 years. So they have been on the decline and it cannot get to much worst for the NY Mets as they are at the bottom of the barrel. The past 4 years, Dave Hudgens was the hitting coach for the New York Mets. Hudgens, is a duly noted guru in the baseball community who is highly tauted for his prowess in hitting. He has had onE [...]

Philadelphia Phillies 2014-15 Team Review

We should all feel sorry for new coach Rhyne Sandburg! Here is why! The Philadelphia Phillies ranked 23rd in hitting last year with a .242 team batting average and .363 slugging. Considering all the talent they have on the team including Utley, Howard, Rollins, and Marlin Bryd they could not tie a consistent offensive attack together for most of the season.Utley, Rollins, and Howard had off years where their power numbers fell dramatically along with their personal batting averages. Sure we know injuries played a part, but this excuse is being used with nearly all the teams now. Hitting coaches [...]
