We all say patience, but when do you panic?

Tejada, Arod, Giles, H. Matsui, Sexson

I have them all! I think there are players that have better numbers than all those guys combined (take Sexson off the list and that's definetly the case)!

Last year I had Paul and Burrell (you know which Paul I'm taking about) and I held on to them for months!

The only one i could see not living up to the hype is Matsui, but he could have a surprisingly good year IMO (more familiar with AL pitching). But you can't expect everyone to perform to their highest potential every day. There is no way you drop any of them or even trade them IMO. ARod? He'll be the stud he always is when he settles in a little bit. Tejada? Same thing I think, he could outperform last year maybe even. Giles? Solid performer who can only go up. Sexson? Same thing with the changing teams. If you look at your list three of those guys (Tejada, ARod, Sexon) are absolute studs at their respecive positions who made team changes, and ARod changed teams AND positions. Just hold your horses, these guys WILL come around. ;-D

Panic when one of them gets hurt and is out 2 to 4 months.

When players start off slow, I ask myself "Is there a logical reason to think this player might be due for a down year, or is he just slumping?"

With the track records of the players above, I wouldn't worry about any of them. Maybe Matsui, because in his 2nd go round pitchers may know how to go after him a little better.

After 2 months if a stud is still struggling I may give it another thought. But usually by then they've turned it around and I'm laughing at myself for ever being worried.

Patience is virtue.....Don't worry.

Last year look at the players I had who started out SLOW

Tejada
Chavez
Giambi
Sosa
Hudson

Those 5 guys struggling meant I was in the CELLAR, bottom of the standings

Did I trade them...no!

Did I worry, yes here and there, but the cafe offers support and I stayed convinced they would turn it around.

Eventually all of those guys turned it on (Giambi sord of) and by the end of the year I won my league.

Point is dOnt worry. Its been less then 2 weeks. PATIENCE!

I have a stockpile of closers so I just traded Percival to someone who is panicking on Abreu.
