Certainly. It's not like there's 5 months left in the season or anything. I mean you're judging every player based on what their numbers look like right now, right? Okay, good. As long as we're on the same page here.


no I am basing it off the first month of the season along with the rest of his career.

I really thought Greene would have a breakout season given the move from SD. Guess not... :*)

On a positive note...

His K rate is down this year from 25.7% to 13.3%
His BB rate is up from 5.4% to 9.3%
His BABIP is .217, down from his career average of .282 (very unlucky)

Its still mid May, so I don't think its time to write off Greene yet. The peripherals point to an increase in average. The power is not there yet, so that seems like the primary concern. I think his confidence may be shaken by his low average, causing him to forfeit some power. His slugging percentage is currently at a pathetic .306, which is well below his career average of .422 . Look for an increase in average along with (hopefully) an increase in power over the rest of the year.

Take your patience and logic elsewhere. It is not welcome here. :-b

Lot of season left.

I'm benching him until he has a couple of solid weeks. I suffered my first loss of the season last week in large part to Greene's underwhelming effort.

Some guys never get the light bulb to turn on. Maybe he's one of those guys?

Sure he cant be any worse than he is right now.
He got benched for two games and came back hitting 0/6.
And he is comitting errors at short.
Even TLR will lose confidence in this guy at some point in the near future, unless he goes on a tear very soon.

cant see any reason for anyone to waste a roster spot on him even. Maybe a deep NL only league.

save yourself the headache, dump him to the wire, if he heats up be ready to grab him, but its unlikely

Khalil Greene would only be useful in a 2x2 league where the offensive categories were lazy flyballs and sliders swung-through. You're better off with an empty roster spot than being tricked into playing him.
