Julio Borbon: Unlucky or Bust

Postby rotoquest » Sat Apr 10, 2010 8:39 am

After putting up good minor league numbers, a fine 2009 debut in just 157 AB, and a great spring I was really high on Borbon who seemed to have all the tools to put up good fantasy numbers in 2010. Then he starts 0 for 16, and the optimist side of you says "OK he's been unlucky but still has about 584 AB." But the pessimist side says "How could I be so wrong...what a bust...sell him to someone while he still has value." I'm still optimistic because he has such a fine track record, but I'd like to know other people's thoughts about him. He is owned in 75% of CBS leagues.

I have him in 2 leagues and I am holding him on the bench until he breaks out of his slump. Everyone slumps, but unless he gets sent down to AAA I going to wait and see.

*In one league I already grabbed him off of WA!

How can somebody be a bust after a week?
Patience, grasshopper.

I am about ready to drop him since my league only has 4 bench spots. I also have McLouth in my OF who is not doing much better, especially considering he is hitting 9th. So I think one has to go. Stubbs and Davis are still available :-?
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)
