SEXSON?

Postby masarume » Tue Jun 13, 2006 3:34 pm

Not an injury thing, but rather a player update. Was not sure if this belonged to the rant section or here though.

What is up with him? He isn't that hold and he has lost his power already? is it just a cold streak or what? Does he not feel comfortable in the lineup?

Any analysis would be good. Other than "Sexson Sucks".

I got him off waivers for Morneau and now I'm thinking of switching up again.

Yeah, he had a slow start, but he's hit 6 home runs and has 24 RBIs in the last month. Seems to me like his power is ok.

He's actually battling a heel injury if I remember right that's probably going to be with him to some degree or another the entire year. He's never been much of a contact hitter so anything that saps some power (and a bum heel could definitely do that) is going to have a huge impact on his value.

Can he rest it off for a while?
Would the ASB help?

From what I've read rest would help but not solve the problem...at least the type of rest that you get in-season. They're saying he won't be 100% until he gets the off-season to rest. It doesn't sound like the type of injury likely to get him to the DL but at the same time it doesn't sound like he'll be close to 100% for the rest of the year.

Sexson flat out said that the heel didn't have any affect at all on his swing. It only bothers him when he runs. I really don't think it's an issue and it doesn't seem like he does either.
