Last year was a fluke. No way he puts up numbers even close to last year. Im guessing numbers close to 2 years ago.

Atkins is really starting to freak me out. If he`s on base, its from a walk.
April---- 2006 : .364 Avg 4 HR 18 RBI 23 R
April----2007 : .240 AVG 2 HR 13 RBI 11 R

8-o :-o <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> :-/ :-[ !+) :-t :-P :~( :-t :-t :-t :-t

How could last year be that much of a fluke?

Im not lookin` for homers---just .310+ AVG with lots of RBIs and Runs. Its not looking to good with him batting behind Hel and Hol instead of in front of them.

And what makes it even worse is that Atkins is 27--- the age when Major Leaguers are supposed to really break-out.

Another miserable night for Atkins.

Ive had him on the bench for awhile now, playing Upton instead of him. I don't think last year was a fluke though, theres a lot of guys in bad slumps right now..let's hope he is just in one.

i think he'll be fine, especially come the hot summer days in denver. he'll hit .310 or so and put up 28/100/100 would be my guess. last year wasn't too much of a fluke, the kid can hit. he's just starting off slow.
