Strong chance. Scratch that. Very strong chance. If he's available to be stashed, now is the time to get him.

Yes....

He's always a slow starter (granted, not this slow), and it's not like he just completely forgot how to hit a baseball or something. The BBs were still there, so it's fair to say he was just going through a rough patch. He'll be fine, probably around .270/25HRs by years end as a floor, and his numbers could end up much, much better than that.

I've been trying to buy low on him and Bush all year and nobody in any of my 3 leagues will budge on them. Sometimes its annoying playing in 'expert' leagues~.

I still think he can put up solid #s. I liked him before the season, but the move to Pitt hurt his value. Not sure if he'll be able to match last years HR totals with such a poor start though.
