I don't really agree with the "in spite of" part. Ordonez was very, very good in the first half and a major part of the team's winning. Coincidentally enough, the team hasn't been quite as successful since Ordonez's numbers went south. If you ask me, the team's success is actually somewhat related to Ordonez's success, not in spite of it.
But still, this guy has been BAD since the all-star break, possibly the worst cleanup hitter in baseball during that time. The numbers don't tell the whole story. It could be his knee wearing down or an overall lack of conditioning, but he seems worn out. He seriously needs to step up.
