Good hitters slump, bad hitters slump.

A guy that hit over .300 at all minor league stops with maintaining a high babip of .330+ due to a speed rating of 6.0+ who also hit over .300 with a high babip of .330+ with a speed rating of 6.0+ in 150 AB's after being called up last season can also slump for a week.

Borbon has yet to prove himself a bad hitter so I will keep him in my lineup until last week's performance because a common theme.

There is a huge difference between asking if someone is unlucky or a bust, i.e. Julio, when he has never had a pro career. We all know what Teix will and wont do. That is why he is a round 1-2 talent. People have no idea about Julio that is why the OP asked this question.

All that said, I do agree that there needs to be a little more patience.


Well we can look at Minor League track numbers along with what he's been able to do in the pros and make a bit of a prognostication from that. Though I have no clue why andre ethier has even entered the discussion.

Agreed Wicked. I just do not understand why people act like the OP question is so ridiculous and then talk about Teix like it is a similar situation. It's not and that is all I wanted to say.

Patience, grasshopper.


Never could get that marble from the master's hand. Borbon is benched which means he will start hitting now.

I think a good start would be to switch him and Andrus. To take some pressure off him.

Andrus already has a whole year under his belt and is looking good with a 4/4 bb/k ratio.

Part of me says, "He's just slumping and its only been a week, let him work it out." The other part of me drafted Cameron Maybin last year, who was unceremoniously sent to AAA after he slumped. In a 30-teamer, that's pretty much death on toast. I am worried.

He who benches is more patient then he who throws away.
