Prince Fielder: No HR in 61 AB's..

Postby coldfusion » Mon Jul 30, 2007 7:15 pm

His OBP and AVG have stayed up, and he's still getting XB hits, just no homers. Any ideas why?

I haven't watched any Brewers games so I don't know. He might be htting a lot of balls that are close to going out.

Last season he only hit 28 Home Runs and already has 30 this year. Maybe he was just in a zone early this season and now is leveling off??

I know 1 thing...I have his teammate(Ryan Braun) and am ver, very, very happy B-) Not too mention...I got Braun for free..

Prince & the Revolution had a mid-season power fade last year too, if I recall, and then rebounded in September. Right now, he is still hitting the ball well and getting his share of xBH, but few have been going over the fence. Obviously predictions of 60 HR were way off -- and kinda silly -- but I still like his chances for 40 and possibly even 45. I'll take 285-40-115-100 from a 24-year-old any day of the week.

Sometimes you can overmanage, and that might be what I did. The match-up didn't look good, so I sat him. My mistake! :(

It's ok ... I benched Bay last night in favor of Melky Cabrera... instead of 3/4 with 3 R and 2 RBI, I got 1/5 with 1 RBI :-t
