The best thing there is to say about last week is that it's over. The Sox went 1-5 on their road trip, and the numbers here will show you whose fault it was just in case you weren't already sure.
Of course, if you weren't already sure, you're either blind and can't read this anyway, or you don't watch the White Sox and wound up here through some weird search engine malfunction.
If you're neither of these, here's the rankings you were looking for.
|6||Alejandro De Aza||406||6||22|
Now while plenty of guys reached double digits, remember that reaching 20 points in a week has pretty much been the ground floor of a good week. After having five players hit 20 points in Week 23, the only player able to do it this week was Alejandro De Aza.
Also, the majority of Adam Dunn's 12 points this week came last night.
But then you see A.J. Pierzynski, Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo and Kevin Youkilis scoring in the single digits, and the offensive struggles become clear. As a general rule, when Dan Johnson is able to score more points in 5 plate appearances than you could in an entire week -- looking at you Dayan and Youk -- that's not a good thing.
It also means Robin should try and find more at bats for Johnson, who is actually averaging 1 point per plate appearance. Compare that to leader Alex Rios who is averaging 0.94 points per plate appearance.
DAN JOHNSON IS OUR MVP!
