Are you watching the games? They are not driving in runs behind him. And he has come through in 1 game in the last month, and that was a solo homer. His biggest highlight before that was a sacrifice fly.
The key runs are being driven in by Frazier, Cozy, Mes and Choo. Frazier and Mes are kind of like the blind squirrel, but at least they come through occasionally with risp.
