Vlad - Don't mean to complain, but...I will a little.

How is it that Vlad has no doubles on the year? And while he has 6 HRs, and a nice BA, what's up with the 15 Ks to only 4 BBs. If you multiply that out, that's more Ks than usual for Vlad. And that's a lot less walks. His OBP is also down to .336. That's about 60 points less than last year. I know it's only April and I'll be patient. But these aren't first round numbers right now. I hope he explodes here soon.

There really should be a hamster to eat the complaining "omg my guy is struggling through 100 ABs so far this year and he only has 500 ABs left" posts. This is at least the 2nd Vlad hater in 2 days.

He's essentially on pace to surpass all of his counting stats from last season (except Runs).

Relax.

His stats look OK to me.... He is one of those players though who, when the age drop off starts, it'll probably be a fast drop. The guy has no plate disciplines and depends on his physical ability to hit a ball thrown anywhere... When that swing slows down a bit, it's gonna be ugly becuause he's not selective.

Yeah, there should be a "boo-hoo my guys not doing as well as I wish he were" forum so we could dump these posts there. :-B
