View Full Version : Question...

Mike Aviles was certainly a pleasant surprise last year...

but what's going on with him this year. He's currently below the Mendoza line and he's been moved from the top to the bottom of the lineup. Hopefully he bounces back and I do expect him to be around .295-.300 by the end of the year.

i know it's still really early but I expect better than this. Is he injured or something, or is he just having a sophomore slump? Help me out...

and yes, he was on my fantasy team last year and i did draft him this year as well, if you guys are wondering. But, besides that, he's one of my favorite players in the league right now.

thanks guys.

He hasnt been right all year. I think the World Baseball Championships messed him up! Every Royals player who played in that is messed up.

what's a fluke?

his rookie year or his slow start to this year?

Home run in the 9th today! Yeah, it isn't much...but it's something!

hopefully that gets him going and hopefully he doesn't stay in that 9 hole for long.

Seems like a great kid but he ain't hitting .300 this year. Will be lucky if he hits .270.
