Konerko - slow starter?

Postby CalBoy2131 » Fri Apr 20, 2007 2:39 pm

He's sucking so bad right now. He owns the SP he's facing tonight so if he doesn't do it tonight, I might have to bench him until he gets it going.

Can anyone aleive my worries? Does he always start so slow?

I can't help your worries too much, but I can kind of confirm them for ya. Last year he started similarly slow--- worse maybe. He beats himself up pretty bad. I'm watching the game now actually. After his last at bat, a pop-up out, he grimaces and throws his bat to the ground. He puts a lot of pressure on himself. A few games ago after he popped out, he went into the dugout and used hit helmet to destroy a row of watter bottles.

On the upside, once he gets going, and he will, he's nonstop. His ceiling will be .315 with 45HR, his floor will be .285 with 30-32 HR.

He is uber streaky. I wait a little longer than 2 and half weeks before worrying.

Don't sweat it. A nice 2RBI hit for him just now, that should be good for business ;-D

I think we're all worried. There is starting slow, and WOOO it's only Aprilism, but PK's numbers are bad and he's looking bad. I keep looking to bench him for Sexson, but he seems to hit the pitchers on those days well for his careeer, yet he still sucks so far. Last April he hit .360, 6 HR with a 1.073 OPS, his best of the year. and usually his HR totals are good when his average is down. :-o It looks like June is historically his best month, so I'll hold until at least then.

He may not like the cold weather. His contact right is only slightly below his career average, and he is drawing a good amount of walks.

I have this weird thing with his since his disaster in 03. I'm a fickle person, but I expect a turn around soon. He is a streaky hitter.

Just watch him do well on the first day I decide to bench him (vs Meche).
