I appreciate your encouragement---but............
Atkins started VERY strong last year. Thats why I drafted him as a relative unknown.
APRIL 2006---Atkins batted .364 4 HR 18 RBI and 11 Runs!
June was the month he went totally nuts with run production---but he pretty much led the majors in Run production from the start of the season. His lowest monthly AVGs were June-August which were 318, 311 and 309.----So ,respectfully, he had a pretty auspicious start to 2006.
