methinks its a combination of him not having any protection (Jeter/Giambi when he was awesome v. Teix/Fullmer or someone even worse when Fullmer's injured is not even close to being close :-b ) and gradually more and more pitchers thinking they can throw to him out of the zone and get him out. i dont think cos of those two factors he not seeing nearly as many pitches as he was in the past. and being how impatient of a hitter he is and lacking the pitch selection, not seeing pitches prolly means not being as sucessful.

however that doesnt change that he was my first pick in a couple of leagues. i sure as hell hope he goes on a power+SB streak. :-D
Tex is better protection then Jeter or even Giambi with the Yankees the past 2 years.

i'd say we just have to accept his erratic play.
even kent and boone owners would kill to be in our positions, at least regarding 2b.
