Not trying to attack johnsamo, just calling Figgins lack of fantasy production like I see it.
Depends on what you call a slump. If you call a slump a 'lack of fantasy production' then yep, Figgins is in a slump. However, if you only call it a slump if the hitter is having poor at bats then it sounds like Figgins isn't slumping - he's just been unlucky.
Frankly, it's been that kind of year for Figgins...However, I still blame the hitter when he is making outs even if he is hitting the ball right at people....Hit the ball harder and maybe the ball will get by the infielder or sail over the outfielders head. Lay a bunt down....Just get on base Figgins!
