Eris Hosmer getting the dreaded Mental Break

Eric Hosmer is expected to receive a second straight day off Friday.
The Royals want to give Hosmer, who is batting just .174/.237/.319 in 36 games this season, a mental break. "He’s been doing a great job of staying positive, but I think it's time he just sits back and takes it easy," manager Ned Yost said. "The results aren’t showing. He’s probably hit 15-to-18 line outs where if he’d just found a hole with half of those, he’d be hitting .270. So when you don’t have a lot of luck, it tends to weigh you down a little bit, so this is good chance to sit back and clear his head."


Doesnt happen too often with two days off (the one yesterday was common for struggling players) but maybe it will help!

It coudn't hurt that's for damn sure.

I'm on the verge of giving up on him.

Agreed with the first part. The second part ... that would be a mistake IMO ...

Well the only reason why I haven't is because I blew my 4th round draft pick on him in my AL only league.

But I never should have joined the "Eric Hosmer Cult".

I think I drank the Kool-aid.

I think I will give him until the end of May. If he doesn't show life, bench him and pickup a 1B or make a trade.
