I'm a VMart owner, so perhaps this is just wishful thinking on my part, but he got off to a brutal start like this in 2005. Consider the comparison between his stats through May 24 that year and so far this season (first number is his 05 stat, second one is so far this year):

AB = 141 / 140
H = 27 / 42
BA = .191 / .300
OPS = .538 / .702
Runs = 9 / 9
RBI = 12 / 15
HR = 2 / 0
EXH = 8 / 8

So his number are almost identical, except for the fact that he has 2 fewer home runs this year and a bunch more singles to inflate his average. The good news is, as you may recall, Victor started to pick up the power numbers right around the end of May, hitting four dingers in six games from May 29 to June 4. And by the middle of June, he was raking. He ended up having one of the best second halves of anyone in baseball that year, posting a .380 average and an OPS of 1.026 after the All-Star break. He hit .295 or better in every month from June on, topping out at .402 for August. And after posting OPS numbers of .620 in April and .602 in May, his OPS never dropped below .900 in any month after.

Despite his abysmal start, he still finished with a .300 average, 20 home runs, and an OPS of .853. His run and RBI totals, 73 and 80 respectively, were down because of his slow start and remain his worst totals in those categories since his 2004 rookie season. Still, he averaged 14.5 runs and 16 RBI per month after May.

Fellow VMart owners, let's all hope that Victor has a similar post-May season to the one he enjoyed in 2005. At least it seems like we've seen this story from him before and the ending, at least, is a happy one. Keep your fingers crossed.

In a H2H league you are probably right, but quite a few of us play roto leagues and he's killing us. !+)
