Welp    edit: I deserve the 5 notifications I get daily from this thread 😞 

Also read where he is already preparing for the adjustments he knows he will need to make. He has been feasting on fastballs so far. He is going to begin seeing a steady diet of offspeed pitches and i

Ok please tell me otherwise it will bother me for days - what was that from again?

Remind me of Aquino from a few years ago.  Could be good for a month or two, once the league figures him out, he'll be toast.


Hasn’t homered since May 26th...

We knew this would happen. Hard%, barrel% and exit velocity are all great. However, his BB% is in the gutter and his K%, whiff% and chase rate are through the roof. Much better player in 5x5 than points leagues.

Apparently not everyone knew this could happen 🙄

Some savvy managers would have been working their bench coaching skills the last couple weeks.

Power hitters are streaky.

The HR's will return and it's not like he's fallen off a cliff.

He's still at .272 on the year and has 4 RBI in his last 5 games.

He strikes out alot but so does everyone, it seems, in baseball today.

As long as he's productive with the ones he doesn't miss and he keeps that AVG. above Mendoza, the coaches will be satisfied and so will I.

Nah, don't think he's done yet. Just a rough patch. Doesn't help that he just went against Kershaw/Bauer/Buheler.

I would be more worried about having to start Nicholas Pivetta than Garcia

Some of his advanced metrics still look good.

He's slowed down which isn't shocking. It happens to literally every player. Now we'll see how he bounces back. He's still been in my lineup every day cause there's just too much upside to bench

LOL, really?  A guy doesn't even have a slump but just a less than hot spell and you trash him?  Why?  This is baseball.  No player in the history of the game stays white hot forever or even red hot.  I see absolutely no evidence that the "sky is falling, the sky is falling."

He just needs to hit that next homer.

0/4 with 3 strikeouts and 1 double play today.  The line has dropped to 268/300/515.    In the last month he is hitting 243 with a 704 OPS.   In his last 15 days 227 with a 585 OPS and 1 HR, 0 SB.   The league appears to have figured him out, and his production may not be so sustainable for a full season after all.

It’s a lot harder to break out of slumps with a 6th percentile walk rate and 12th percentile k rate (and third percentile chase rate and 12th percentile whiff rate)

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
