Rasmus?!? Any updates?!?

Postby rickyjay73 » Fri Apr 18, 2008 12:57 am

I have him in my keeper league and it seems like he has been struggling as of late. Is there any Rasmus/Cardinal fan out there who has any insight? Is he adjusting to a new team/level?!? Is it a typical slump?!? Is he getting over-powered?!? Is he hurt?!? Is he typically a slow beginner?!?

Whoa there, Chicken Little. Ease up on the interjections... This is his first year in AAA, and he's only 21. I'm sure he's just adjusting to the new level of play. At least give the kid a couple months. It's not like he's getting called up any time soon. St Louis' current OF have been playing quite well so far.

Geez, I thought they only had these posts for major leaguers...you're not related to shoelessjoetara, are you? ;-)

From what I hear the Cards are trying to get him to use the whole field, as he has been mainly a pull hitter in the minors. If thats true its easy to think he is struggling due to the new emphasis the Cards have placed on him. In the long run he should be fine, though I dont really agree with what the Cards are doing.
