Atkins may get some time off

Postby BJSFAN123 » Tue Aug 21, 2007 3:33 pm

"Atkins has looked sluggish in the field of late and may receive some time off, the Rocky Mountain News reports.
Spin: Atkins has not been sluggish at the plate, hitting .324/.392/.504 since the All-Star break. He has only five home runs and eight doubles." -Rotowire

Wish I knew if he was playing today or not

His offense has been fine, but his defense has just been pathetic. With the young gun Ian Stewart up and playing well in an extremely limited role, I wouldn't be surprised to see him nab a start or two.

On a side note, the man who replaced Atkins (Ian Stewart, a big time prospect) hit his first career home run, a grand salami. ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D

Atkins has to play today. There is no way Atkins will be platooned, at least not in a pennant race. Stewart's time will come post Helton era when Atkins moves to first. Besides, Atkins is hitting right handers better this year anyways.
