Mike Aviles blows goats

Postby Box » Wed Apr 06, 2011 8:00 pm

Homeboy has looked completely lost at the plate the past few days against some pretty pedestrian competition. 0 fer his last 12 including an impressive 0/7 today. Anyone have any insight on how he cooled down so fast from an impressive spring?

Kila and Aviles look identical.

His problem so far seems to be that he is pressing way too hard. Chances are pretty strong that he is going to be moved way down in the lineup to 8th or 9th until he can settle down and stops trying to pull everything. Luckily Betemit is struggling just as much so playing time shouldn't become too much of an issue.

If it helps get Cruz into a more reasonable spot in the lineup, I'm all for it! The 6th hole is a crime. (Boy is Texas stacked.)

Unless Beltre starts hitting, he can kiss the 4-hole goodbye and you may get your wish.

"Tru" got his money, anyone who doesn't expect him to revert to Chase Headley is clearly fulfilling the old adage about those not knowing history being doomed to repeat it.

The switch from Seattle to Boston has a lot more to do with his offense last year than a contract does. I assume he'll like hitting in Texas, it turned Nelson Cruz from a very average player into a stud, it can do it to others.
