Not at the table Carlos
Much like the stars of the smash hit comedy “The Hangover,” Carlos Lee and Carlos Pena have canada goose outlet toronto factory been trying to piece together the memories of their hitting prowess.
It seems as if both Lee and Pena were a bit hungover this season, seeing as they were both mired in slumps earlier in 2010, but now they are back to mashing the ball like they had in seasons’ past.
Carlos Lee has been one of the canada goose outlet store more consistent players in terms of offensive production over the past decade or so. There was a time where Lee was a lock to hit 30 homers and drive in 100 runs, but for some reason he never really earned the kind of recognition canada goose uk outlet that his output merited.
In any case, Lee’s fantasy stock dropped somewhat as we entered 2010, mainly due to the fact that he plays at a deep position and sits in the middle of an anemic Houston Astros offense. Lee started off very slowly and on May 4th, just about one month into https://www.drachen-spiele.de the season, was hitting a measly.198 with no home runs and canada goose outlet store uk only six RBIs.
Since then, Lee has managed to wake his bat up to the tune of 10 HRs and 30 RBI, making him not only the Astros’ most productive offensive player, but also one of the hottest outfielders in baseball over that span.
Unfortunately, Lee is still hitting.226, well off the mark of his career.289 batting average. In addition canada goose factory sale to that, Lee is not stealing many bases, likely due to his putrid.263 OBP.
Lee can still turn the average around, much like he has with the HR and RBI production, but until he starts to get on base a little more and bump up his BA, it’s feast or famine canada goose outlet jackets with the ‘Stros outfielder.
Moving on to the other Carlos, Carlos Pena, we canada goose outlet reviews see the same type of trend.
Carlos Pena had one of the worst month’s I have ever seen this past May. The Rays’ first basemen, and AL leader in HRs last year (tied with the equally as disappointing Mark Teixeira), only managed to cheap canada goose Canada Goose sale hit three long balls in the canada goose entire month while watching canada goose outlet Canada Goose online black friday his average plummet Canada Goose Coats On Sale to.175.
Now there will be those who will argue that Pena has never been on to hit for average, but the problem with Pena is that even while his average was never anything to write home about, he was still hitting a ton of HRs and driving in enough runs uk canada goose to hide a career.244 BA.
Heading into June, Pena only canada goose black friday sale had 8 HRs and 31 RBIs, not awful, unless you’re hitting under the Mendoza line.
Pena then turned it all around with canada goose outlet one of the best weeks in the history of baseball, hitting canada goose outlet uk sale seven home runs in five games from June 6 12. Pena also drove in nine runs and hit.450 over that span.
Pena is still not hitting for average, and at.195 will hurt your team if you play roto, but canada goose outlet in usa if he can continue to produce the way he has been over the past canada goose outlet sale month, it makes him much less of a burden to carry throughout the summer.
In what I canada goose outlet canada would like to call “the season of the rookie”, the Pirates have called up Pedro Alvarez who hit.277 with canada goose outlet online uk 13 HRs and 53 RBI in 66 games with AAA Indianapolis.
Alvarez joins Stephen Strasburg, Jason Heyward, Buster Posey, Mike Stanton and Mike Leake as young players who can potentially have a major fantasy impact this season.
