Does Burnitz play baseball?

I'm pretty sure he should try out for another sport. Well, I am overreacting, he is just in an AWFUL slump. Batting .100 (6-60) with 3 RBI. And he has absolutely zero trade value. Ughh.

I'm dropping him, not much left in the season and Im not waiting around for some guy that when isn't in a slump is just an average player on my team. Decided to pick up Franceour for him.

What did you expect with the guy? He's been streaky like this his entire career. That's what you get when all the guy tries to do is jack a homer or Ks all the time. His mechanics gets thrown off and then he just gets in a deep funk. Sammy Sosa and Jim Thome are like this as well, but on a higher level.

He looked pretty good yesterday, though. Much better than a 1 for 4 indicates, at least. He hit the ball hard right at Pujols twice and hit one to the warning track. I think the 4th was a line drive to an outfielder, but am not 100% sure.

HMM lets see. Jeromy Burnitz is THE MOST OBVIOUS ROIDS USER IVER EVER SEEN. He probably found out that his name is gonna get dropped and now hes slumping.

Actually I think that honor has to go to Bret Boone.

Yeah, I'd look at Bret Boone before Burnitz. Burnitz career doesn't have any aberrant years that jump out at you, that could say steroid use. He just happens to have the Coors Field-aided .915 OPS last year.

Watching Burnitz swing the bat is like something from the past, like a huge, Babe Ruth-type cut. He has a monster uppercut and swings from the heels all the time, with his weight ending up way out in front.

When he gets hot, he's nice to have around, but then you get his long, cold, dry spells.
