Top Five National League Offenses

Title Track






# Team Park Factor Outs EqA EqR
1 Florida 934 2670 .273 519.6
2 Cincinnati 1011 2772 .272 533.5
3 San Diego 912 2791 .268 516.9
4 St. Louis 1003 2747 .266 499.6
5 Chicago 1003 2775 .264 496.4


Raise your hand if you thought San Diego was in the top five. Okay, now hit yourself because you're lying.

Lance: I have for two seasons thought that the Padre offense was as under-rated as any in baseball.

In a controlled atmosphere (re: identical parks, against identical pitching staffs and defenses), I would expect the Friars to finish among the league's top five run-scoring teams.

I am not so delusional as to think that our beloved home team would outscore the Cards under similar circumstances. And what is a productive offense, but one that produces runs?

If you wish to state for our reader, Richard, that the Padres have a more effective offense than the Cardinals, by all means do so. But I'll think you're nuts, and so will our reader.

WOW!

I didn't hit myself because there's no way I would have guessed that...

Lance ... St. Louis has good pitching ... and a lot of good hitters have spent a lot of days on the DL this season ... it's not a stretch for me to believe that the offense the Cardinals have fielded, on average so far this season, is "less effective" than you might think (and has been "less effective" than what we'll see in the post-season with healthy Rolen, Walker, and Sanders in the lineup).
