Is it just that he has been on top of the ball?
Everyone tells me to patient regarding this guy. How much time does he
need to finally start coming around? The season's more than half over
and he's done very little with the bat- his OBP is terrible (.327) and
his slugging pct. is less than .400. Is his finger that he fractured
earlier in the season still bothering him?
Dunno. But here are some numbers...
2004 (not injured): .297 AVG, .344 OBP, .446 SLG
2005 (not injured): .300 AVG, .345 OBP, .465 SLG
2006 (before injury): .333 AVG, .385 OBP, .458 SLG
2006 (since injury): ~.265 AVG, ~.274 OBP, ~.283 SLG
Make of them what you will. He certainly looked like an ok (and
consistently ok) player before getting injured.
I think he's turning out to be a bust and they should try dealing him
before the deadline while they still could get some value for him.
I think you're jumping the gun, but you could be right. I do think
that trading him now is a matter of selling low, unless you think that the
prevoius two years were flukes and his numbers this year post-injury
reflect his true ability.
Crisp and Tek are showing to be significant liabilities in the line-up
This is true so far. Perhaps they'll come around.
Catch you later.
