A's snap 5-game losing skid
Josh Donaldson, Daric Barton and Brandon Moss hit solo home runs and Jarrod Parker pitched into the seventh to lead the Oakland Athletics to a 4-3 win against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night.
|Having been traded from one of the majors' best hitting environments (Coors Field) to one of the worst (O.co Coliseum) prior to last season, Seth Smith figured to lose some power in the move. Sure enough, he slugged just .392 in his games at Oakland, but he raised that mark to .444 on the road. That figure would have been even higher if he hadn't struck out in 28 percent of his road at-bats. Owners can be comforted in knowing that Smith didn't lose much power overall, and he looks to be a strong candidate for a batting average rebound. However, after yet another season of poor production against lefties (.157/.250/.271), don't expect Smith to face southpaws very often. The hit that his playing time will take as a result means that Smith should only be used in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats. (Updated 1/8/13)|
