he has only 1 hit since then, brutal.
Josh Rutledge went 0-for-4 on Wednesday, dropping his average to .045 in the five games since being recalled on June 14.
The shortstop was hitting well at Triple-A Colorado Springs before the promotion but his bat has gone ice cold with the big club, as he's just 1-for-22 in the five games. He's also struck out seven times while walking only once. The Rockies don't have many better options while Troy Tulowitzki is out, though, so Rutledge will likely continue to see playing time unless his struggles persist.


Kind of hard on the experts after the fact aren't you, just curious as to what you said about it before hand. :-?

I didn't even really like him coming into this season.
he can be OK and good enough, but I think he was over hyped.

Carlos Gomez has out hit Pujols over that time frame, same HRs, but better counting stats, and 6 SB's to boot, but i cant get over Verlander ...


Speaking of past trades. Since my Kershaw/JPA for Fernadez/Hamilton trade...

Kershaw - 4-4 58.2IP 44H 16BB 13ER 52K
Fernandez - 5-3 48.1IP 36H 16BB 13ER 54K

Hamilton has 8 bombs and JPA has 7. Ham batting .216. Aaron Cibia .209.

Even Stevens. Only problem here is that I should have got a lot more for Kershaw, but if Hamilton wasn't so useless, I could have easily be winning this trade.

I've been patient cause I thought he was just being BABIP'd to death, with his other indicators looking pretty in-line with expectations (and maybe he still is), but we're fast approaching the season's mid-point with few, if any, signs of a turnaround. He going to stack .100 pts onto his OPS any time soon, or have we reached the but bait time?


I'm holding while everything else looks good, though I admit I haven't been playing him much lately. Maybe just because it seems difficult to justify a drop to myself.

Also because I own Puig in the only league where I own Prado, so it's hard to get too worked up about anything in that league, lately. :-D

Rutledge may suck right now, but at least he has potential for HR and SB. Scutaro is either a BABIP-mirage empty batting average or complete garbage. Best case scenario: a bunch of slap hits land in front of the right fielder and he flukes into a .300 batting average. Guys like that are over-rated because people think that they don't hurt in any category since they have a decent BA. When really, they're killing you in 3 categories and at best treading water in the other two.
