the guy only(i use the term lightly) hits for high average.. he scores few runs cuz the guys behind him (betemit, lugo) suck ass and dont ever knock him in.. and he doesnt get too many ribbies cuz furcal and lofton get on but nomar knocks em in and then drew and kent suck it up and end the inning before ethier can get a shot at rbis. this week he only has 2runs, 2rbis and the week is nearly over.

No complaints here!
i'm just trying to be devils advocate here.. trying to find a reason to drop him and i cant find one. although.. much of that "since the break" stats are from a time when both kent and nomar had stints on the DL.. and this week they are back and his runs and rbis are down.. but his average is still up. something to consider.. thats all
