Crawford, Anything wrong with him(besides sucking?)

Postby cwrtlm » Wed Jul 04, 2007 9:42 am

Man he has gone to the dungeon lately. I mean come on, a first or second round guy going cold like this. I am seriously contemplating starting A. Jones over him next week. Is that really crazy??????

yes
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

He was red hot until last week. He'll get it going again. You won't be happy, if he's on your bench when he does!!

I echo the sentiment. This guy seems to have an amazing week followed by an absolutely terrible week. Now it seems he is on pace to have his second terrible week in a row. And by terrible I mean like 1-17, so he's gonne be what, maybe 2 or 3 for 34? Not numbers someone drafted this high should have. If it weren't for his sbs and triples (our league uses them), i'd bench his ass.

As a Crawford owner I feel everyone's frustration here, but seriously even the best players go through dreadful slumps. You've just gotta ride it out, I think he'll be fine. He's not even that far off of his normal pace... I'd like to see him pick it up a little bit of course, but I have faith that he will. If you went dumping every player who had a slump you wouldn't have anyone left on your team.

Still only a whopping 6 for his last 35. I will take it, hopefully the move to the 2 hole will get him some more SB opps. With free swinging Wigginton behind him before it was always 3 outs before he could even get a chance to run.

Crap, I have him, as well as the all-to streaky Soriano and Beltran ... and I am in a H2H league. I have been very frustrated with the streaky nature of my OF. Anyone I could target in a trade who is the model of consistency?
