Starting to get concerned... still a few years from production? Surprisingly contributing in the SB department too..

Is he a buy low option? Or are you staying away for now

The batting average has been bad, but he has been reasonably productive in spite of it. I've had him on my bench for about a week now, but I'm certainly not dropping him anytime soon and I could definitely see buying low being a good idea.

I'm pretty sure he started off slow last year as well. He might be one of those guys who don't hit well during April and heat up afterwards.

His timing is off...I'm not that concerned yet.

I've posted this before in response to Snider questions, but...

http://www.minorleagueball.com/2011/4/2 ... vis-snider

In a redraft league I would go either way - could see buying low, could see staying away given needs He's not likely to hit for a very good AVG this year. In a keeper/dynasty though he's a valuable commodity. Very valuable.

He had the same slow start last year before going beast mode, then he got hurt. Keep the faith!
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Goes 1 for 6 but hits game winning double against Yankees. Maybe this will get his confidence going. Also Aaron Hill exited the game with an apparently right leg injury, didn't look overly serious though

Aaron Hill is another one who needs to turn it around.

It was painful to watch Snider's first AB against Burnett tonight. Even my dog cringed. No wonder Dice-K threw a gem against these guys. !+)

But all is forgiven, lunchboxhero. B-)

Nice walkoff double tonight. He also Bo Jacksoned his bat after K-ing for the third time.
