Is there anything else going on with Richie Sexson?

He's actually pounding the ball. All his hits but 1 have been doubles or HRs. He should get the AVG up to 260 by year's end and hit 35-40 bombs with 120 RBIs...

I really want to believe this. He is on the verge of being sent to the waivers by me but I feel that he was drafted to high to be cut already.

Somewhere mixed in between a slow start, a weak middle and a poor finish he gets 30 home runs and 437 strikeouts.

Seriously though...what you see is what you get with Sexson. He'll heat up for short spurts and have these 4 strikeout days that kills your progress. He's a extremely poor man's Adam Dunn.

So you're saying 35-120-260 is an extremely poor man's verion of 40-100-250?

Is the potential of 30 homeruns worth it if he can't hit for average?

Unless you name is Dunn or Howard then I would say no.
