Josh Reddick has only been so-so this season.

His hitting with runners on base has been just awful. He very frequently ends up smashing his bat onto the turf after repeatedly failing to hit with runners on base.

In A and AA ball Head batted .333/.391/.577 with 23 bombs in 528 plate appearances ..with the caveat that he was better at A ball than he has been in Double A.

Alcantara was lousy in A ball. 6-11 5.08 ERA in 102 innings.

He has flamed out offensively in the second half, but he was the A's most important offensive player in the first half.

Just looked it up and he has a BA of .217 and an on base average of .255 the second half of this season. I knew he had been doing poorly, but that is even worse than I realized.

Checked out his hitting with runners on base this season and his BA is .190 with men on, and that is for the entire season.

Reddick's wPA, which measures the timeliness of his offense, is negative. Which means he's done more bad in big spots than he has good.

In fact, he has the 3rd lowest wPA of any qualified hitter with above average offense as measured by wRC+

With the NL West wrapped up, Bruce Bochy gave the regulars a day off and trotted out a lineup composed of bench and September call up guys. It was a powerhouse group.
By OBA/ SLG
CF Blanco .329/.346
2B Theriot .315/.318
3B Arias .312/.395
LF Nady .248/.300
1B Pill .268/.356
RF Peguero .167/.167
C Whiteside .250/.222
SS Burriss .272/.222

The above group has combined to hit 13 home runs this year.

I wonder how it was decided that Nady should bat clean up.

Starting for the Giants was call up Yusmeiro Petit who last saw action in the big leagues with Arizona in 2009. He wasn't very promising, seven hits, four walks, two runs and a single strikeout in 4.2 innings pitched. He needed 94 pitches to get that far.

I guess it was just too bad for the fans who bought their tickets far in advance and by fortune of clinch day, wound up attending the game managers traditionally treat like an exhibition.

Padres won 6-4.

Isn't it heartwarming, the way the Red Sox are helping the Yankees win the division.

As opposed to what? Throwing the games in the name of spite?
