Thome cooling off?

Postby thirdeye44 » Sun Aug 01, 2004 12:52 pm

Anyone notice that Thome seems to be striking out a lot more recently as in the past 2 weeks? Usually K's twice a night. His BA dropped 22 points, SLG down 81 points, and OBP down 24 points in July. Also hit 4HRs. Any comments or info?

He couldn't stay scorching forever, my guess is as long as the hand isn't bothering him, he'll be okay now that the offense is hitting again.

He's usually hottest June-July, just around the All-Star Break...couldn't expect him to hit that well the entire year...he's more of a .270-.280 power hitter because he misses so damn much.

Thome is the definition of a streaky hitter. Most power hitters who strike out are. Think nothing of it. It all averages out at the end of the season.
