Blalock while a notorious 2nd half dud I wouldnt bench him unless you just have someone so much better, he is playing pretty well and will needed to keep it up to help the Rangers overtake the A's and Angels in the AL West.
not really a hater, its more frustration with the guy because everyone knows he can hit, he just isn't getting it done this year. even though he has been hitting well lately, he still has only 11 XBH since june first and only four HRs in that time, not exactly amazing numbers from a position that is relatively deep.
what i'm more concerned about is finding out exactly how bad the "shoulder soreness" is. that and whether or not he is going to be platooned at third and only start against righties, that would really kill his value. any rangers fans out there know anything about either of these situations?
