Dayn Perry serves up some cool Lipovitan for the Ameriquest hangover…
Last season, the Rangers led the AL in slugging percentage and ranked third in runs scored — but in terms of run prevention only the lowly Royals and Devil Rays they were worse. Much of that, however, is due to their environment
...It’s clear that offense was the Rangers’ team strength in 2005, but once you account for Ameriquest, the difference isn’t so pronounced. Daniels and the rest of the front office are right to focus on pitching, but they shouldn’t do so to the neglect of an offense that’s good — but not great — in a neutral context.
There’s also something else the Rangers need to handle insofar as their home park is concerned. Whether Colorado hitters, by dint of playing half their games in such an extreme environment, suffer some sort of “hangover” effect when playing on the road has been previously explored. That is, hitting at one mile above sea level is so accommodating and so downright unchallenging that it mangles a batter’s approach when he spends the next four days in, say, Dodger Stadium.
