I don't see anything in his K rate that indicates his average will be above .260 this season.

I traded Dontrelle for him straight up; not a bad idea... my second base position was an offensive black hole.

Nothing in his K rate indicated that he'd hit above that last year, but he hist .282. He is on pace for more Ks this year, but his K/BB ratio is the exact same as what it was for the season last year. Right now, despite hitting almost 40 pts below last year's average, he is up 11 points in slugging, and is on pace to have more Rs, HRs, and RBIs than last year. He started off slow, but he has been on base all but one game this month. And his RBIs might be coming in bunches, but he has scored Rs in over half his games (and 10 out of 14 games this month). Maybe he's been a fluke for the last 1 1/4 yrs, but I'll ride it out until he proves the fluke to be true (not like I have another 2B option anyways).

I wouldn't give up on him yet. D. Uggla will produce. That was his second multi HR game of the season. He is streaky but who isn't. That Marlins team has a scary offense. I seem them similar to the Mets in a couple of years and maybe sooner if they can keep MCAB and get a new stadium.

very good player thus far in the season

are you serious ?? :-?

He had an horrible April, he looks better in may

some awful stats:
- 5 HRs, 13 RBIs in 3 games ...... 3 HRs, 12RBIs in the other 36
- 40 k/39 games


-I fail to see how it matters what games he puts up numbers as long as he puts them up.
-He had high K numbers last year as well, so it was to be expected.


- have you heard about H2H ??
- my league counts Ks and "expected" doesn't mean 1+ for game


That's you're problem that you add a category like Ks and then take a guy that struck out 123 times. Most people determine value based of a vanilla 5x5 league. I've been happy with his production thus far. 15th in HR, 12th in R, and 25th in RBI ain't too bad for a mid rounder (especially a 2B).


no, it's not my problem because he's on my bench
