A-Gonz: 3 HR since May 29 ?!?

Postby StringerBell » Sat Jul 28, 2007 5:09 pm

I havent paid that close attention,but its actually much worse than I thought. Adrian Gonzalez only has 3 HRs since the last week of May. Thats 3 in 51 games. :-t

Even Freddy Sanchez has 4 dingers in just the last 4 weeks.

Ive been waiting him out because I got him cheap in a keeper league. I know his AVG. has picked up in the last couple of weeks, but what gives? !+)

How would that affect him hitting the occasional Solo Shot? Also---half his games are on the road, so the park explanation cant cover 3 HRs in 9 weeks.

Yeah he's having a power shortage over the past few months. Striking out quite a bit. It's nice to see he is starting to hit again although not for power.7 HR's in April and 2 in June and 1 in July. Ouch.

Hate to break it to ya, but he's not a big power hitter. He's a line drive hitter. Since half his games are played in that huge park, he's not going to hit a ton of HR's. 7 in April looks to be the extreme, as is 3 since May 29. Look for him to fall somewhere in between the rest of the way.
