Adrian: Gonzalez or Balboa?

Postby StringerBell » Thu Jul 05, 2007 5:06 pm

Adrian has been struggling for a while now. I read somewhere that his foot was hurt. Any light at the end of the tunnel?

I was just about to post something about this bum. He's been in a crazy 15 (now 16) game slide. Batting average has dropped 30 points in that span without a single home run. I dealt Sexson away to get an OF but now I'm hoping I didn't trade the wrong first baseman. He had been pretty consistent but this slump is getting frustrating.

He had a similiar month long slump around August last year----but came around strong after it. He`s still only 25, so as long as he`s healthy he should get that swing back. I`m just a little worried about the foot hurting him........

He KILLED me in the playoffs last year.He strikes out all the time. I don't think a sore foot would cause anyone to suck this bad. I have Pujols and Konerko. I think I'm going to drop him for Marmol.

i picked up LaRoche today, jus cant handle Agonz anymore.

that said i think hes waay too good to drop and will get out of this slump(someday) cause like the guy said earlier, 25 years old and he was jus crushing the ball earlier in the season, crushed last season(and went through a slump) and still got his avg back to 290 i think?

hes sittin on my bench for awhile though, at least till LaRoche cools off cause oh my is he HOT HOT HOT!
ummm lets go angels? :)
