"Swing and a Miss" advice from CBS

Postby TheYanks04 » Tue Apr 19, 2005 12:31 pm

From the CBS site...obviously they have no clue as Boone's Yankee hitting experience consisted largely of strikeouts on balls either 3 feet outside or above his shoulders. Looks like Boone is in mid-season form.

CBS:
Aaron Boone has yet to show the hitting eye he had two seasons ago with the Yankees. His two homers and seven RBI aren't bad through 12 games, but his .116 batting average is horrific. Benching him in mixed leagues is advisable at this point, but don't remove him from your roster altogether just yet.

Boone was being vastly overrated before the year started. He's not a .100 hitter, but he's barely a .250 hitter and may not even do that. :-o

Before Boone came over here, he was a very streaky 250 hitter with some pop and speed. He would hit nothing for 2 months and then go on a tear against some bad pitching. The park in Cincy helped him get the HR total up a few also.

Then he went to NY with a bigger ballpark and pitchers that liked to throw breaking stuff a lot more...and fans who expected some performance. And he wilted like limp lettuce. He was nothing short of AWFUL for the Yanks save for the one ALCS homer and a couple of series in Baltimore where he brutalized pathethic O's pitching in Sept of 03.
