They are very good (like 5th) in both Ks and BBs.
As I mentioned earlier, that's fine for today's game. Hitting is just really compromised by weaknesses in how today's players attack pitchers, especially when they get down in the count. Outside of handful of hitters around both leagues, most players today could care less what their average is. Today, someone hitting .260 is considered a very good hitter. Well, to me, it's average. Nothing more, nothing less. I know, today's pitchers are so incredible with their 95-100 MPH heat. I get the argument. Hitters have no chance. Well, what are they doing to adjust to that velocity besides swinging from their asses trying to hit homeruns every at bat? Not much. The approach is the same if they're ahead in the count or behind it. Instead of cutting down on their swing and trying to make contact and put the ball in play, they strike out, walk back to the dugout wait for the next at bat to do the same thing. Mountcastle is the poster boy for today's hitters. Some are worse than others. MLB is trying like hell to inject more offense into the game but as long as a hitter's philosophy is to either strike out, walk or hit homeruns, nothing will change. Personally, it doesn't bother me all that much because if you give me a choice between the ridiculous stats of the steroid era to now, I'll take 2023. At least there's a semblance of balance in some ways. But don't expect me to be impressed with the Orioles offensive rankings relative to the rest of the league. Their line-up has numerous holes in it and it's hard to watch day after day.
Ok...I'll set my watch and wait for the defenders of all that's great about 2023 baseball to come charging to the rescue.
