"So, exactly where was this falloff? He hit 290+ in every month except the last where a not to shabby 275 was posted."
First of all, I said he'd continue to hit for power. My point was directed at his BA. 290 is very good but far below his historical average and a drastic decline from his prior months in 2004. No matter how you slice it, he dropped off considerably after the first half last year, and has continued to slide in the first 1/3 of 2005.
He might turn it around, but he'll have to reverse seven months of declining BA. I don't like those odds.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
