Candidates to bounce back in May

Postby Polar Bear » Tue Apr 28, 2009 3:24 pm

Who are some guys that have had a piss poor April, but you believe will bounce back for May?

Matt Holliday - Even if he doesn't hit 25 HRs this year he should hover around a .300 average.

Dustin Pedroia/David Ortiz - I grouped them together since they are on the same team. I think Ortiz has fixed his swing, but the power has still not returned. Pedroia has also showed signs of returning to form. I think they both will have a solid May.

Geovany Soto - April was sort of his Spring Training. He is batting a sweet .119 right now and I think he will be batting around .250 at the end of May.

Ubaldo Jimenez - I actually think Ubaldo will start to improve as well. He started off great and then proceeded to blow up the next couple of starts. I may just be a sucker, but I think this guy is still going to have a solid year.

Milton Bradley. Can't do worse in May than he did in his 24 AB with 1 hit in April. But at least that hit was a HR.

No doubt Teix will heat up. But he doesn't usually get really hot until post ASB.

He had a red hot spring so I was hoping this was the season we saw the Teix we love for all 162 games. But I hope for that every year.

J-RO ~ can't get much worse. Hopefully last night will be a sign of things to come.

Carlos Guillen ~ not a bonafide star anymore but he is eligible at 3 positions in most leagues so a nice May would do wonders for his Fantasy owners and my Tigers :-D

Not that Hanley has been bad so far, but he hasn't had any of his typical explosions. So I expect a couple monster stretches are in store for Hanley.
