Manny and Pronk: Unexpected Power Droughts

Postby Doughhead » Fri Jun 15, 2007 3:53 pm

Combined, these guys have 2 HRs in the past 39 games. I didn't expect these two to be dragging me down in the power cats so much. Is the breakout coming?

I hope so because I traded for Manny (Troy Glaus and Geoff Jenkins - thought I was ripping the guy off, doesn't appear so). I know Manny's a slow starter, but the guy is killing me. My OF is Manny, Soriano and Abreu. Talk about dissapointing and not playing up to expected potential. (except Abreu until lately)

i just did a piece on Hafner in my "What's Wrong" series at my blog here:

You have to believe he's going to turn it around, but I believe Hafner's swing is different this year, and the numbers seem to bear that out.

HTH,

Hafner: I think ppl are underestimating the lingering effects of his hand injury last year.

Manny: I think he'll hit more than his share of HR this year, but the age-related decline has apparently set in.

I have both of them and I am still in 5th and moving up. You got to assume both will up the HR pace relatively soon.

I think both of them should be fine. I traded for him for 2 of my leagues recently.
