Underperforming OF's

Postby Slow Pitch » Fri Jun 06, 2008 5:18 pm

Which underperforming OF's should we expect to see a big improvement over the 2nd half of the season?

Two that come to mind I am debating are CB Young & Curtis Granderson.

I sure hope that CBY will improve. I just traded Oswalt and Bradley for him, and his current level of production makes me lose out. :-o

Dont know why you would trade Harang and Bradley for CBY..thats a loss for you no matter CBY production. But Vlad is really stinking it up and has seemed to decline week by week. Hopefully this break will get him right ;-D

Did I say Harang? LOL....I meant Oswalt. It's just that I saw the word "underperforming", and my mind apparently jumped to....you know. ;-)

i dunno about Granderson, his hrs, runs, rbis are fine. It's just that his avg is low, but I don't think you should expect him to hit .300 with the way he k's.

Two players that come to mind are Crawford and Carlos Lee. They're playing decent - but not as expected. (I'm mostly referring to their horrible averages).

That was the concern about Granderson going into the season. Rios is probably a good bet moving forward.

These are two guys who are both on pace to match what you'd expect from them in every cat except avg, so not much to really complain about. Crawford hasn't seemed like he's really gotten hot yet. Lee on the other hand has been pretty solid and his avg has only really dipped in the past week or two.
