The guy looks totally screwed up in the head right now. He's not even hitting the ball hard. It's like weak grounder weak fly ball over and over and over.

I blame Don Baylor truthfully . No one can hit!
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Atkins to AAA?

Rotoworld wrote:According to the Denver Post, Rockies third baseman Garrett Atkins could soon face a demotion to Triple-A.
"There comes a point where we have to make a decision," manager Jim Tracy said Wednesday. "We are to the third of June now, and we are talking about getting to the point of a couple of hundred at-bats." Atkins has hit just .188/.264/.273 in 176 at-bats. Ian Stewart would make sense as his fill-in.

Just read the AAA thing also. They should send him there for a while. His chances of even a 18 HR, 70 RBI season are waining fast. I think he will end up somewhere in the 12 HR, 55-60 RBI, .250 range.. He is just as bad as Papi this year!

Wasn't there a mega-Atkins thread in Cheering/Venting a few years back? You guys should revive that thing if you really wanna get him going.

I want to drop him. But I can't. If he goes to AAA he's gone.
