Wow. It doesn't take long for a season to take a wrong turn. The Carp are 2 and 7 at this point and the hitting almost doesn't exist. With Eldred's knee surgery and the loss of Ka'aihue to the Washington Nationals, the Carp are pretty meek at the plate. Maru and Kikuchi have been a little sporadic so far but they will probably get going soon. Still, at 4 games back already, the Carp are in a pretty deep hole. Hope they can turn it around.
