So can someone explain to me Richie Sexson's deal please?

What has changed since last season. His splits do not indicate that he is a slow starter. Hes just not hitting...at all...ever.

I would just like to know if anyone has seen him this year and know what's wrong? Is there a hole in his bat?

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Speculation on my part, but he has Everett and Beltre protecting him (yuck) and has never been what you would call a disciplined hitter. I think he is pressing and expanding his strike zone/getting himself out. M's offense is just plain horrid.

he already has 1 of if not the largest strike zone in baseball being so tall, expanding it probably isn't a good idea

:-? He's a career .269 hitter who's currently hitting .216. A couple of hits and he's right back to his norms. :-?

Yes, but I agree that many of his struggles come from lack of protection. This has been the worst start of Beltre's career, and I'm pretty sure that I could even strike him out the way he's playing right now.

I've definitely added the Mariners to the Royals as a pitching matchup team. Their lines are pathetic just about every day.

I have benched Sexson for a while as I'm doing ok for HR in my H2H matchups and would rather keep Jay Gibbons in as he seems to be displaying some pop AND some average this year. I still am following the Mariners just to see if it might end and I've seen little sign of life out there.
