He's never been a first half hitter.

Give him time, he'll catch fire once the weather gets warmer and Sanchez comes back.

A lot of good it does a fantasy team in the first half.

I don't need a 2nd half hitter on my team, for the first half of the season.

Yeah I'd suggest knowing that before you draft him... the idea with hitters like that is that you let someone else draft them, get frustrated and buy low (Aubry Huff for example... or in this case LaRoche). It's kind of like the opposite of fast starters, draft 'em for value cause likely they end on a low note and fall in drafts and when they start off hottmove them (formerly Mike Lowell for example).

Just dropped him for BJ Upton. LaRoche was my utility guy. Not anymore! Can't deal with watching him 0-2 every at bat then knowing low and away is gonna get him swinging.

I thought they went after LaRoche specifically to provide protection for Bay. Oh well.
