Allen Craig's future as a hitter

No matter how Allen Craig finishes out the season, 2014 is likely to be a personal disappointment statistically. Is there hope for a rebound, or are the Cardinals better off moving him before his value erodes further? When this season finishes, regardless of the team's success, Allen Craig's statistical line will be a disappointment. Craig is currently sporting a .244/.295/.355 line good for just a .290 wOBA and a wRC+ of 84. Adding no positive value on defense and Craig has been a replacement level player in 2014.

The oft-injured Craig is hitting just .246 this year,...

Allen Craig's punchless pulling

Punchless pulling is one of the more troubling developments in Allen Craig's weak offensive performance. Allen Craig has not hit very well during the first 83 games of the 2014 season. Early in the season, VEB's Craig analyzed how the Cardinals' Craig was hitting a very high number of grounders. Later, Joe broke down Craig's trouble on inside pitches. Watching Craig roll over on grounders to the left side of the infield at Coors Field last week, I wondered if these problems might be connected. Put otherwise: Is Craig having problems turning on the ball with power? First, we need a baseline....
