Hitters in clear decline whether you want to admit it or not

The Rafael Palmeiro thread got me thinking about this.
Before the season I had Sosa, Bagwell, and Piazza in this category. Anyone else want to add some names?

Jason Giambi rings a bell...So does Bernie Williams... And Jorge Posada (though still productive, just not as)

Yeah for Yankee hatin'...

Juan Gone. Of course. :-D Frank Thomas. I'd put Nomar here. Pudge?

Yankee hatin' is for losers.

I was thinking of guys who have gotten worse for 2, 3 or more years in a row and people still expect them to bounce back.

I don't think Posada is on a clear decline. He isn't that far off from his career marks.

Walker put up great numbers when he was healthy until this year. Same with Thome.

Nomar :,-( Don't let the terrible injury overshadow the awful start he had.
