Morneau--Major Cold Spell

Postby benjapage » Thu Jun 02, 2005 2:12 pm

since going yard and 4-for-4 overall on may 17th, justin has amassed only 6 hits (no homers) in his subsequent 45 at-bats.

has anybody seen or heard anything that would explain the funk? or better, anything that would indicate he's on his way out of it?

yeah, yes...

Not sure if it is related to his slump, but Morneau just left today's game with a left elbow strain.

Solid analysis. Please, give some reasoning if you're going to downplay a guy's potential.

I mentioned this a few days ago and folks jumped on me for worrying too much. His streak is now getting pretty long and frigid... all since I aquired him, coincidentally.

I'm still trying to write it off, personally, and hope it's just him working through hitting major league pitching. Hopefully he'll come around, but his numbers are quickly becoming average for the year.

Analysis? I think his numbers speak for themselves... he's unproven, but yet has the ability to put up good numbers (for a week). It's not enough to get excited about just because he has a pretty swing. The kid swings at awful pitches, gets confused, and easily struggles. I'm sure he'll be good some day, but everyone has him all pimped out this season and I just dont see it.

I'd rather have Dimitri Young, personally

you might not have to worry about him hitting for a while......


Game Notes
Justin Morneau of the Twins left the game in the top of the 5th inning after suffering an injured elbow. He was replaced at first base by Matthew LeCroy.

Like most talented young players his production will hit peaks and troughs with relatively great variability.. Knowing when to play him is the key.
