Avert your eyes: The Pirates’ anemic offense

Here are the Pirates’ everyday position players, sorted by 2012 wOBA.

Position Player PA wOBA
CF Andrew McCutchen 62 .361
1B Garrett Jones/Casey McGehee 33/37 .319/.298
LF Alex Presley 58 .283
2B Neil Walker 54 .248
3B Pedro Alvarez 38 .175
RF Jose Tabata 50 .172
C Rod Barajas 35 .137
SS Clint Barmes 49 .132

The most discomforting realization I had while looking at these numbers? Pedro Alvarez, who many would describe as being lost at the plate, has been the Pirates’ fifth most productive everyday hitter thus far. Yikes.
