Hanley is 0 for his last 16

Best spot would be the bottom of the lineup til he stops slumping. Same thing we did with Infante. Move Morrison up to 2, Gaby to 3.

 

Not too much a fan of back to back lefties at the top of the line-up.

But ... nobody else to put there so... Double-edged sword.

Dod you guys think this is Mike Lowell 2005 all over again? We would of made the playoffs if he didn't have such a horrible year.

 

I'm not entirely sure about that. We went 83-79 in 2004 with him doing great. We went 83-79 in 2005 with Delgado having a great year and Lowell slumping. *shrug*

If Hanley doesn't get out of this slump through the whole year I will be worried if not I am fine winning games with him in suck mode.

 

It was said in another thread but what if

 

Infante who has a career BA of .273 starts hitting a little better and

Hanley who has a career BA of over .300 starts hitting.

 

What if they were all doing well, this team would be insane.

I don't know why but he is consistently trying to go oppo on balls inside, some of which have been meatballs. If he would just go with some of them, he'd be a lot better off.

 

 

Hes been in between all year, they always say to let the ball get deep and go the other way. Think the other way and react in. Right now he just seems to be taking it to the extreme.

Yes, my memory tells me he was at his worst with less than 2 outs and a man on third. Countless pop ups withs bags loaded, etc etc in close games. Keep in mind, it is my memory.

Not that it matters much, but interesting that Uggla is at .198 now. How would that power duo of Hanley and Uggla be discussed on these boards.

Just when Hanley is heating up a bit, along comes a young whippersnapper to make him feel old:

 

Starlin Castro grew up idolizing Hanley Ramirez, and now he gets to compete against him. The 21-year-old had a strong showing last night in front of one of his favorite players growing up, picking up two hits in a 7-5 Cubs win.

 

"It's great to play against him," Castro said. "He's a great player and a great guy. Just a few years ago, I would watch him on television, and these past two years, it has been great to play against him."

 

:lol

 

Perhaps he'll take it as a challenge to bury the kid's numbers and actually do it.
