From Today's Denver Post:

3-2-1 CONTACT: Garrett Atkins, it seems, leads the universe in lineouts. But he has slumped this season, in part, because he’s not making his usual steady contact. He’s on pace for 102 strikeouts, nearly 30 more than his career high (76).

So that explains why he's not getting hits... ;-7

So where are all the people that had him ranked ahead of Aramis Ramirez? ;-7

He had 1 good year and it was mostly due to his batting average, there was basically no reason why people had him ranked so high coming into this year. He'll end up with about 20 Hrs by years end but you could get a WW 3rd basemen that can do that.

Dumb statement...It was Atkins first full season in the majors last year and its on May for crying out loud.A-Ram is exactly tearing the cover off the ball.

I had them pretty much equal coming into this year. The way I figured it..

Avg = Atkins
HR = Ramirez
RBI = Tie, slight Ramirez
Runs = Atkins
SB = Tie, slight Atkins

Still very early and Ramirez isn't exactly lighting things up himself. I can't say either way at this point how it will end up.....
