It didn’t take very long for the complaints about the Cardinals’ offense to start rolling in. Averaging 3.7 runs per game, the Cardinals currently stack up just below the National League average of 3.75 runs per game. They’ve hit four home runs and stolen five bases and are hitting .241 with a slugging percentage of .349. This is all John Mabry’s fault.
Or is it? Can we even say that we know anything about what this offense will be this year based on the first six games of the season? I don’t think so.
