Runs -middle of the pack for the Orange and Black

David Pinto at Baseball Musings projects that the Giants will score 4.37 runs with the probable lineup for 2013. That's pretty close to what they did last season at 4.43 runs, which was 6th in the NL and 12th overall.Here's some of it -- 

This offense looks a bit better than I thought. While no one but Posey posts a great OBP, only Brandon Crawford projects to be an out machine. Bochy can pretty much move the players around Posey and Sandoval any way he wants and still come up with a pretty good batting order. As long as Buster stays healthy, the team should score enough runs to win with the excellent pitching staff on the mound.

I've got news for Dave Pinto. Brandon Crawford is not going to be an out machine this year.

Agree with DrB. Crawford isn't going to be a great hitter, but he's going to be way better than an "out machine". I expect him to be a solid OBP guy, which with his defensive value is plenty good enough.
