The Indians are second to last in the AL in scoring runs and second to last in the prevention of their opponents scoring runs.

Clearly the problem isn't personnel, it was dugout management.

Apparently it was the beard...

Since I wrote the previous post concerning Reddick's 0-29 slump, he got two hits in last night's game and today he has hit home run # 30 against the Rangers.

In the 8th inning, consecutive batters for the A's went:

HR K HR K HR K

Still trailing Rangers, 9-7.

Actually, I think there may be something to that observation.

He has a really difficult personality, waaaay up and waaaay down. A change like that can have a greater impact on someone with this type of personality than someone who is more even tempered.

It certainly appears that way based on what we have seen. Of course we are working only with images and a few outcomes. I would not know whether to state that Reddick's mood swings cause his performance to go up and down, or that Reddick's up and down performances cause his mood swings.

Nor can one generalize that the emotional players have a greater tendency to have erratic performances. Citing Eric Byrnes or Milton Bradley would tend to uphold the idea, but Paul O' Neil and Lou Piniella were also very tightly wrapped players and they were both reasonably consistent throughout their careers.

Reddick hit his 31st home run later in the game. I noticed the shades were back, so it had to be the beard.

Can't wait to hear what Chris Perez has to say about this. LOL

Today in baseball...well, yesterday in baseball...

R.A. Dickey threw this pitch to Garret Jones



Per pitch f/x this pitch was a 75 MPH changeup that moved about 12 inches away from Jones as it approached him.

Nasty
