He batted .300 with 3 HR, 15 RBI, and 15 R in that month that you benched him. Good thing you at least got his 2 HR tonight though
I've been starting him all year and never lost any faith. Hitters like that don't slumpp all year. This isn't Burrell we're talking about. Project his past month over a full season:
315 BA, 30 HR, 102 R, 108 RBI. Not bad for somebody who people figured was still in a slump. And 3B eligibility to boot
