    Respectfully, so far Travis is not giving me any reason to like him tbh. He's been 0-for-7 in this series, and while it's still early days, batting 0.088 is not something you want to see from a guy paid a six-figure salary to be your "star second baseman." I understand that his career stats are impressive, but he's a streaky guy and to me that means he's unreliable—I'd prefer to see consistent output from a player.. And being as fragile as Brett Lawrie isn't quite helping his case either. Rather see Bo Bichette out there instead right now.

    No not really it at all..... But taking a small sample size and saying that this player sucks because of it is probably not the smartest thing that has been said in the forum.

    Talk about overreacting to a lineup. It isn't that bad, and the Orioles blow.

    It is that bad.. but the Orioles do blow so it could be a toss up
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    No its a weaker lineup.... No where did i say it sucks, but if you look at the career numbers which give you a more clear idea what to expect from guys like (Gift, Maile, Pillar hitting 5th,) you can come to the conclusion that if you run that lineup out there with any regularly your likely not going to score many runs.

    However you look and Devon Travis in a bigger sample size it shows that he is a pretty good hitter. He has had a shitty first 2 weeks doesn't mean he won't hit, certainly didn't mean that he couldn't last year when he had a rough start to the season.

    That's a false equivalency.

    You can't say a certain player sucks because of a small sample size. You can say a lineup sucks based on half the players having a large sample size of sucking.
