Whenever I see him hit a HR I get him back in the lineup since they seem to happen together with a nasty 3/40 (approximately) in the middle of his HR binges.

Nick Swisher (along with Davis) also seem to be like this. Frustrating for sure.

One interesting note about Stewart is that his career OPS is much higher on the road then at home. Not a big sample size sure, but the point is that his stats aren't inflated by Coors field. He also does fine against lefties.

Coors isn't a huge hitter's park anymore.

It's not a HUGE HR park. It's still a pretty big hitters park. Lots of Singles drop in. You can't imagine how big Coors field is until you see a game there. It's enormous
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

True, you basically pick you poison as an OF at Coors. You play back and allow a lot of cheap singles, you play up and get a lot of gappers that go for extra bases.

Last time I checked he also has a better OPS vs LHP. Should normalize along with his home/away splits as he gets more AB's.

Picked him back up for Asdrubal. Hoping A-Cab will stick in FA if Ian flops.

I've always liked this kid. I've probably had him on my team 3 different times now and believe he's finally coming around .453 avg his last 7 games and you guys know the rest. Last 15 has been a respectable .333. Now if only he can continue getting some more PT!

Very glad to see Stewart getting a couple of singles so far today - shows that he's not trying to mash everything but taking what the pitchers are giving him. If he continues this approach it will go a long way toward keeping his BA at a respectable level. His BA currently sits at .241, having risen .064 points in his last 5 games.
