Peralta - What gives?

Postby jsphlly » Thu Jun 01, 2006 9:28 pm

I had real high hopes for Peralta going into the this season. I keep thinking he'll finally turn it on so I haven't cut him but I'm getting impatient. Anyone have any insight on this guy?

Not insight....but, I'm benching him for a while. Feel free to start him for his soon-to-come hot streak. :-D

0/5 when his team has scored 11 runs. Worthless. :-t

I dropped carlos guillen and pick up peralta today. Awesome move!

Although, I hope this works out long term.

I dropped Peralta yesterday for Bobby Crosby. ;-D

Both are batting around .250 right now, but Crosby's at least showing some power (8 HR to Peralta's 4) and looks to be on the way up (11 for last 20, 2 HR).

I'm last in my money league in BA and with Dunn, Pierre, and Peralta on my team, someone HAD to go. Dunn's getting me HRs, Pierre's getting me steals, which left me with Jhonny, who's not doing anything worth noting.

Agreed. I keep hearing how the Indians offense is the best in the majors this year....so how in the heck can the 3 hitter on that team be putting up such awful numbers??? I could see if he were getting on base and scoring a bunch but not hitting HRs, or vice versa, but Jhonny is killing me. :-t

I'm giving him a little more time to adjust to the sophmore slump, and if it hasn't improved by a great deal, we'll see. But, if Cleveland is seeing enough out of him to keep batting him 3rd, then hopefully the hits will start falling.

I hadn't been paying that close attention to the guy, but this thread explains why Peralta just hit the wire in my 12-teamer (owner moved Garciaparra into his ss slot, so no quibble there).

Weird thing was the same guy dropping Kent (for JCastillo), when he had an open DL slot and could have just picked up Castillo for free. :-?

No, this is not a public league. Bunch of guys been together 7 years and normally seem to know what they're doing.

I was thinking about benching Peralta, but with Kent hurt that means I will need another MI.

I'm really frustrated with Kent. Just as it seemed that our team was to be at full strength, he goes down. Oh well, maybe it just wasn't meant to be.

When Peralta struggled early, I picked up Hanley Ramirez. So I'm content to wait for Peralta. Hopefully if Hanley starts struggling -- as he has a bit of late -- Peralta will get it together.

If they both play well, trading chips!
