I bumped a post in leftovers as well.
Sanchez has been very solid is the second half since getting regular playing time in '05. Does anyone have any insight on whether Freddy is injured, or whether he is just playing poorly. Rotoworld mentioned that his shoulder may be of some concern. His average is a brutal .226 right now and he has been dropped in my 16 team keeper league. Could use that kind of average and rbi production in the second half. Any thoughts?
Second half numbers:
'05 - .306 4/20/2 (HR/RBI/SB)
'06 - .329 1/36/2
'07 - .313 9/49/0
The problem here is that Sanchez' first half BA hasn't been drastically different from his 2nd half the past 3 years.
First half numbers:
'05 - .271 1/15/0
'06 - .358 5/49/1
'07 - .296 2/32/0
Never before has he had a batting average as dreadful as the .226 he's stuck at right now, so my guess is something isn't right with him and at this point I wouldn't expect a big 2nd half turnaround.
