Tulowitzki's lack of Power ...

I bought high on him in a keeper and I am hoping you are right. But right now his GB% is at 50.9%, his LD% is 15.8% and his GB/FB is 1.53. He's hitting a lot more ground balls this year. Didn't pay much attention to early season rates for him last year, so I don't know how well this matches his early season "slumpy" profile though.

It seems like whenever I make one of these threads 'calling out' a players performance, or lack thereof... then that player starts hitting/producing. ;-D
Remember me?

Can you put Pablo on your 'calling out' list? he's actually not doing that terrible but is also lacking power (along with zobrist).

Now if only Pujols could find his power. Any time Pujols has more SB than HR's in a month, that's just bad... (unless he has 10+ SB in a month).

The guy broke out and you paid for him to repeat it.

This won't give you any solace in your pick, but this is a guy who I will very much target next year, because his numbers will be good, but because he didn't meet the expectations of his owners the year before his draft value will likely plummet.

Back to making you feel better. Tulo's fine. Drafting a guy who historically doesn't hit until june, and then worrying before June is a little silly, no?



Oh, is that what it is? So, based on his 2 previous injury free years of at least 500 AB's ... he doesn't hit until June?

Sorry brah, I can't say I put forth that kind of effort to investigate 'when he 'historically starts hitting' I'll make sure to take note of that now, though.

And I didn't pay for him to repeat anything. I did however expect him to ... perhaps build on his game and numbers from his previous seasons? Or at least come kinda close.

Y'know, because he is 26 and entering his prime as one of the most widely thought of best young players in the game, and plays in Colorado in a strong lineup.

But still, I guess it's silly of me to question why he only has 1 HR in 139 AB's, yeah? :-?



Man coming back to stick it your face, and I realized how big of a douchebag your comment was. You asked "where's the power at?"

I told you and you got all douchbaggy with your reply brah(sic)

Anyways, it's almost June and he's heating up, feels good to be right.
