Lopez’s Power

I’m not saying Jose Lopez is a pull hitter, but


Today’s HR isn’t included in that chart yet, but I’ll give you one guess where it went.

Also, fun fact – Lopez doesn’t have a single home run that has traveled 400+ feet. Russell Branyan only has six that have traveled less than 400 feet.

    for what he curently makes, lopez is a decent value, he is solid, not great on defense, his problem is his range, and i get what all the charts say and i do think we have seen pretty close to the best we will get from him,having said that he is arguably our best clutch hitter and provides more slugging than the sacred adrian beltre and his declining bat provide, to me if he is hitting 6th or lower in your line-up a this cost he is a decent value. The problem is the M’s have so many offensive holes that they have too many guys who should be hitting 6th, 7th or 8th rounding out a line up instead hitting 3rd, 4th, 5th (guys like lopez, beltre, sweeney, griffey).

    Find your shift key.

    I believe that most keyboards have them on the left and right-hand sides, next to the the z and / keys.
