Is A-Ram playing that bad???

Postby Big Tiex » Thu Jun 22, 2006 4:03 pm

someone dropped him and i picked him up immediatly. I was just wondering, is there something wrong with him or was it just the owners giving up on him?? i'm thinking he will only get better when d-lee gets back.

He's been on a tear lately. Must not have looked at his numbers over the past two weeks before he dropped him. Nice pick up for you.

Nice pickup, stupid owner to drop him. He's actually hit .290 over the past month with 20 RBI. Those numbers will improve with DLee back.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

He's not doing to bad, he's not getting great run production but thats just because theres nobody for him to bat in, or to bat him in when he gets on.

Average is a little low but to be fair he's been hitting about .280 since the slow first month. 13HRs isn;t oo bad, he's on course for 30+ again.

Certainly not droppable.

Yeh nice pick up, he is now hitting over .300 in
June I think, and he will get better once D Lee is back to form. D Lee can protect him as well as give him good RBI oppturnities...

And most of the problems with his average simply comes from bad luck on balls in play. Really stupid drop.

Here's to him heating up. His HR's have been on track most of the time. If the Cubs could do anything, he'd have decent RBI and R tallies.

Very nice. I did that in one my leagues too. A nice steal. If you don't need him trade him away. A lot better than dropping him.

Yup:

2004 BABIP: .307
2005 BABIP: .293
2006 BABIP: .241

Another thing that I like is his BB/K, which is better than ever at 20/20. ;-D
