Completely agree. I don't care how many outstanding seasons the guy has had previously. The past is the past. MVP or not, that was then, this is now. Why should we give anyone time to make the adjustment from playing in the field to DH. Hitting is still hitting, right? Pedigree shmedigree. This is a "what have you done for me lately" league.
has turned him into an impatient wild-swinging hacker. Career before the injury, he had 415/595 BB/K which is excellent for a power threat with MVP type numbers. Since the injury, he has 20/51 BB/K(1/7 this season is ridiculous even for a small sample size).
He has become a easy out and rally killer by absolutely swinging out of his shoes at nearly every pitch. Opposing pitchers need not throw him a strike, because Justin will definitely extend the strike zone. He fortunately connected once this year, but I am ready for the return of the old Justin any time he wants to knock this crap off.
