he is probably tired, he isnt the most durable of players, we may see a hot streak after the AS break, then another cool down, hopefully the Rangers rest him more if they plan on making a playoff push, a Vizquel/Andrus MI from time to time would look awesome.

Great time to buy low.

I've given up on following Kinsler's splits as they change drastically from season to season. Go back over his last three years and look at his lefty righty and home road splits and if you have never looked before, it is about the craziest thing I've ever seen. I'm not that worried, I think most people would sign up for the HR and SB production. It would be nice to see him sacrifice some HR's for more line drive base hits, but I am not that upset he isn't pounding the ball into the ground. Given that he has missed time in the past with groin/hamstring injuries and the sports hernia, I'd rather see him sacrifice some infield singles for good health when he's not constantly abusing his legs trying to beat out infield hits. Personally I think he'll be fine, and I'd say he's a guy who will hit for more power over the next few years then we anticipated, but I'd say his batting average will fall more in the .275 range then the .300... but in all honesty, with extra HR's I think that's a fine trade off.

Which still makes him one of the top 2B in fantasy baseball.
