Frisco's offensive struggles 

With Jason Botts, Drew Meyer, Josh McKinley, Will Smith, Patrick Boyd, and Jason Bourgeois, the AA Frisco Roughriders came into the season featuring the majority of the Rangers' minor league hitting prospects. And while I knew the that Roughrider offense had been struggling, I didn't realize until just now just how bad it has been...

Frisco is, going into tonight's game, hitting a paltry .217 last in the Texas League. Midland, the next-lowest team, is hitting .255, and Arkansas, first in the league in batting average, is hitting .318, a whopping 101 points more than Frisco.

While the Roughriders are showing a decent eye, at 4th in the league in walks, they are also dead last in homers, with the team totalling only 12 bombs so far.

The big club is hammering the ball right now, but it would also be nice if Frisco could get some bats going as well...
