no way his BA goes from 249-290.. 265 with 12 homers and 12 sbs is more reasonable.. and 85-90 runs
He has 53 runs right now after hitting in the .240's the whole first half. If he gets 32 runs in the 2nd half, he'll have to hit about .190.
The only category that he is slumping is his BA. Everything else has improved, or stayed the same:
bb/k 2005: .59
bb/k 2006: .75
HR/F 2005: 8.1%
HR/F 2006: 7.7%
LD% 2005: 19.2
LD% 2006: 20.3
BA/RISP 2005: .291
BA/RISP 2006: .309
BABIP 2005: .337
BABIP 2006: .287
Another plus is that he's still hitting in the leadoff spot, even after this slump, so he shouldn't be in too much danger of being dropped down.
