I'm not suggesting that we 'get him out of here' or anything like that. I think you know that.
I'm just wondering, is he ever going to take the next step and become a difference maker the way Carlos Gonzalez did last season and Troy Tulo and so forth or are we looking at a guy who has reached his peak.
When I first heard people questioning that he had reached his peak, I simply refused to believe it. As it stands, I really don't know. Just seems like he really doubts himself.
I would have bet my mortgage on him being on zero home runs after the first week of action (only guy in the starting lineup) and I would almost bet my mortgage he's on 1 or 2 when April ends and May begins. He has to stop doing this or he's never going to be more than mediocre.
Edit: he's down to .241 now.
