Miguel Cabrera makes me wanna cry...

Postby yankeekd25 » Thu Apr 10, 2008 10:45 pm

.138 BA, 1 HR, 1 RBI including a 1-5 today. He's got 5 hits on the season. Good thing I took him in the first round! All I heard was "this guy is a natural hitter, he'll succeed no matter what league he's in." UGH!

Bench him next week, I think that is what I am going to do. He will hit eventually, I guarantee it.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

The man didn't forget how to hit, he should be fine.

I had him last season, but I don't remember him struggling or slumping at all. I guess the switch to the AL has really affected him so far...

I would definitely throw him on the WW, no need to be keeping up washed up talent on your line up, especially if you're in my league! I just picked up Andruw Jones, so Miguel Cabrera would be a great player to compliment him!

So far this season...

March 31- April 10, 2008
8 games:

4/29, .138 AVG, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 HR.



Last season...

April 15-25, 2007
8 games:

6/32, .188 AVG, 3 R, 2 RBI, 1 HR


May 6-13, 2007
8 games:

5/30, .167 AVG, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1 HR


August 22-31, 2007
8 games:

3/32, .094 AVG, 1 R, 2 RBI, 0 HR

So, unless there's an injury issue, or the competition in the AL is THAT much better, this isn't exactly unprecedented. Fellow MCab owners, I invite you to smoke a fat one with me... and relax a bit.

Thanks for the reminder man. I forgot Andruw clears waiver today in my keepers league. Just scooped him up for free at the Andruw Jones sale, 100% off!
