Burrell back to the bad habits?

Postby Longhorns76 » Thu Jul 22, 2004 10:45 am

Is he going backwards or is this just a slump. I have him and he is being useless in the last few weeks. Sure his RBI's are up but they haven't been at the frantic pace they were in the first half. How long to wait before its time to cut loose?

This is a fantasy baseball related question that many people might be wondering as well that should go in this forum, not a "should I drop or not question" so don't send the the forum police after me. It might be a fine line I'm walking but if I'm wrong, just move the question to the correct forum.

When Griffey comes off the DL next week, if Burrell hasn't turned it around...he's gone.

Something interesting I've noticed about him:
Code: Select all
        G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS   
Home   46 157 31 44 7 0 12 39 32 40 1 0 .280 .399 .554 .953   
Away   42 154 16 38 7 0 3 23 26 50 0 0 .247 .355 .351 .706


12 HRs at home, vs 3 on the road?! Those are Coors-like numbers. 8-o

That may make my decision easier. At least we may know that it could be safe to start him in home games.
