Will the real D Backs please stand up ?

Sorry for the cross post, but  I assume not everyone here reads DBBP

 

First 17 G,, 13-4, .281/.364/.496 .860 OPS, 112 runs, or 6.6 R/G

Next 24 G, 13-11 .265/.336/.425 .761 OPS, 116 runs, or 4.8 R/G

Next 28 G, 11-17 .216/.302/.378 .680 OPS,, 99 runs, or 3.5 R/G

Obviously some of this has to do with schedule. (.819 home OPS, 689 road OPS) But not all of it. In the first stretch they had 8 home games and 9 away games. In the second stretch they had 16 home games and 8 away games. And in the most recent 28 G stretch they've had 11 home games and 17 away games. Overall they've played 35 home, 34 road.

They've slowed down hitting at home too.

In the 3 Game Detroit series they scored just 10 runs and had a .579 OPS
In the last 6 Game home stand they scored just 22 runs and had a .740 OPS
And of course in the last 2 games vs. KC they have scored just 4 runs in 19 innings.

***In their last 11 HOME GAMES the D backs have scored just 34 runs, or barely over 3 per game, and have scored more than 4 runs just 1 time in their last 11 home games.***

So much for home sweet home.

Last years team had one comparable offensive slump, from April 21st through May 18th,

25 G, .232/.304/.376 .680 OPS, 85 runs, 3.4 R/G
However that team managed to go 12-13 during that stretch. And I don't see a Mark Reynolds on the Horizon to come up from AA to jump start the offense.

But.......... maybe Eric Byrnes will come back in the next few days, rejuvenated and on a hot streak, and jump start this team. Seriously.....it's up to him to be the sparkplug. If there was ever a time where this team needed to look to their inspirational leader and highest paid position player to help pull them out of a funk, THIS IS THE TIME.

As goes Eric Byrnes, so go the Diamondbacks. This is his team.

Go Eric!!
