Reality Check: This Guy Cannot Hit

Dustin Ackley cannot hit.

Jesus Montero cannot hit.

Ike Davis cannot hit.

Mike Moustakas cannot hit.

Brett Lawrie cannot hit.

B.J. Upton cannot hit.

Aaron Hicks cannot hit.

Jeff Keppinger cannot hit.

Some guys who used to hit a little bit…. for example, 

Jeff Francouer, Victor Martinez, Miguel Montero, Juan Pierre and Ichirio Suzuki….

They can’t hit either.

The next time the guy you like, isn’t hitting, remember the company he keeps.

And remember that hitting a baseball in the big leagues is much, much harder than Miguel Cabrera, Joey Votto, and Justin Upton make it look.

All names pulled from the fangraphs leaderboards
