I just put him back in my lineup too.
I'm starting to notice a trend with Delmon. He swings at everything, and that's been KILLING him at the plate.
I noticed on, I think Tuesday, that he had to BB's in the game. I had him on my bench. Since I saw him being patient, I figured i'd throw him into my lineup, and he's been solid the last two nights.
Sooo....when Delmon's swinging freely, he'll slump early in his career I think. When he's seeing the ball well and being patient, get him in your lineup. I've noticed this trend work a couple times this season, He gets a few walks and then hits for a few games....I'd play him (at least for now), when you see those streaks coming.
Eh, maybe it's just dumb luck, but I'd like to feel like I was an observant manager.
