Don't worry about him....he has been doing well, just swinging at some high fastballs which he should be laying off of. He'll realize this and adjust accordingly (I've seen the last 3 games).

No, he just needed a day off. Kearns is K'ing at an alarming rate...which is very unlike him. He just got the day off to try to figure some stuff out, plus, Pena isn't exactly a bad option. I still look for Kearns to get most of the ABs, but occasionally Pena will steal a start from Griffey or Kearns.

Shoot, I was hoping they'd give Wily Mo a lot more at bats and start loving him, so they can trade Kearns to the Bravos :-D

He started slow last year, I would not worry about it. Last year in April he batted .276 with 2 HR and 7 RBI, and in May he batted .212 with 3 HR and 7 RBI. He will get his eventually.

You're right, he did start slow...but wasn't that due to injury? I can't remember for sure, but I think it was an injury he was battling.

Regardless, he's not really playing that poorly so far, he's just swung at a few bad pitches and seems to be pushing to hit HRs rather than just taking what the pitchers give him. I think this is something that he'll correct in the near future....he's too good of a player to slump like this for long. He's one of the best young power hitters in the game, he'll produce. ;-D
