Nothing. He's just been unlucky/slumping and will be fine once it warms up

Sheffield's slow start

I haven't gotten the chance to watch Detroit play this year and I was looking for a little insight as to why Sheff is starting off so poorly.

Regardless of his career numbers, I kind of figured he would'nt post '05 numbers. I voted combination of all of the above. Also, he's facing much tougher pitches not being between Jeter and A-Rod.

Benched him last night for Hamilton. Tough choice between him and the craptacular Teixeira. I'm supposed to be dominating hitting but with their slumps and Glaus's DL, I'm just hanging on.

I read somewhere that he's still getting used to being a regular DH. I watched 15-20 of his AB's and haven't really seen anything wrong with him. He's still getting pitched tough and has been taking a ton of walks. He'll start putting up his usual numbers any series now.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I wish he wasn't on my team, only so I could lowball another owner for his services...

You dont just go from being a .300/30HR/100RBI kind of guy to crap overnight guys. Sheffy is going to bounce back.

Sheff is just bothering me because I know what his potential is and its so annoying to come back to the computer, check how my team is doing and seeing a big 0/5 next to his name.
