Cards are among the worst in the league in one offensive stat

Pitches/Plate Appearance:

As you can see, there are 79 qualifying hitters. The number of Cardinals in the top 35? Zero. The best Cardinals starter in this statistic is Rafael Furcal, at *38th*. Yes, the combination of Allen Craig and Lance Berkman would be higher in the rankings - top 10 even. And yes, this statistic isn't a complete picture of offensive value. Yadi Molina, our MVP candidate, is dead last - 79 out of 79 - in this stat, and I wouldn't change a thing about Yadi's performance this season. But when 6 out of your starting 9 are in the bottom half of the league, I wonder whether it makes an impact on our ability to wear out opposing pitchers.

So I pose to you the question - is this a problem, or is it just an indicator that shows we put the ball in play a lot?
