Albert Pujols- Although has played well last 1 month, at .271 avg 12 hrs so far this season with the money he got has been disappointing, but if he continues his last month of play he should end up near .300 with 30 homers.

Rickie Weeks-20 homers last season while injured playing 118 was an all star, this season hitting a pathetic .185 with 6 homers.

Justin Upton-MVP Candidate last year only has 7 homers in 71 games this season.

Brandon Belt- Alot of hype since being called up last year hit 9 homers in 63 games was supposed to provide power but has half as less home runs then 2011 with more games played.

Bochy platooned Belt with Brett Pill and didn't get consistent playing time for the first two months+. It's not Belt's fault, it's all on Bochy. Ever since Pill was sent down and Belt became the everyday first baseman he turned it around big time.

.323/~.413/.538 since being the everyday first baseman.

Pujols hit .326/.409/.568 with 11 2Bs, 4 HRs, 14 BB (3 IBB), and 8 K's in June. That didn't get much press.

Matt Garza's ERA is 4.01 after his very strong last year. Probably due to some bad luck with the HR, but still disappointing.

I was really surprised he suppressed home runs like he did last year

Adrian Gonzalez

You mean the guy that:

1. is tied for 2nd in 2B's in the AL at 24?

2. has played every game so far this season.

3. the guy who is leading the AL in RISP at: .380/.415/.582

4. the guy that left his GG position to play an unfamiliar position due to team need w/o complaint?

I just want to be sure we are talking about the same guy. The thread says "most" - AG isn't even in the top 28 in the AL for "most". (28 because there are 14 teams x 2 players - Boston alone has a lot more then 2 - and AG doesn't count in that list for a goodly amount of names to go by first).

Lucky in one direction last year and unlucky in the other this year. He's maintained most of last year's numbers, including an improved GB%, except for the HR/FB%. Not worried about it in the long term.

Nelson Cruz is quietly having a down year power wise.

Right side of the Red Sox infield and pitching rotation.

Pretty sure it has to be Rickie Weeks.

He LEADS the NL in SO with 94 and is hitting .185/.303/.310/.613

The Braves fan inside of me would say Brian McCann. .226/.295/.385/.680 on the season

We're talking about the guy that is on pace for 1.5 WAR, like 1/4 of what we expect from him.

We're talking about a guy with splits of an average short stop at the plate .274/.321/.410 with a RC+ of 94, which is just brutal.

We're also talking about a guy on pace for 12 home runs, 1/2 of what we expect from him.

Stop being a homer.

For them to get back in the race he has to get back to his usual self which would be hitting near .270-.280.

Freeman also could be included but he's playing much better of late.

I don't know...I too think Adrian has been a disappointment. The most disappointing? No. But he has been disappointing.

Among qualified AL first basemen...

10th in WAR
11th in wRC+
10th in wOBA
10th in SLG
8th in OBP
13th in HR (tied for last)

I mean, offensively at least, really only Kotchman, Smoak, Hosmer, Pena and probably Morneau have been worse everyday first basemen :shrug:

Easily his worst year since his Texas days....



I don't know who has been THE most disappointing. Just some random names: Weeks, Zimmerman and McCann. Other guys like Alexei Ramirez, Justin Smoak, Cameron Maybin, and Dee Gordon really are playing worse than I expected...

He has not hit well this year. Not like he is expected to, or is paid to.

He hasn't been the biggest disappointment, but he has been disappointing.

It's pretty sad Weeks is still starting. Rickie is a major disappointment. Pujols isn't doing well but I think Weeks is exponentially worse than he is.

Pujols is only getting payed 10 MIL this year, so he's playing like a 10 MIL player. At least, that's my hope.

12, he is making 12 this year.

And what are the chances he plays like a 30 million dollar player in 2021 at the age of 41?

What player is really worth their salary that makes more than $15 million a year? Hell, why does any player need to make more than $10 million a year? I get that if the revenue is there teams will pay it but salaries are totally ridiculous in all sports. No athlete really needs to supplement their income with another job anymore like every player used to.

Let's see what hot weather and getting him out of RF does for him before we blow taps.

Not a huge name, but as a Mets fan Ike Davis has been extremely disappointing. I didn't expect him to be a .900+ OPS guy, but I certainly expected him to build on his solid rookie season. Frankly, he's been much better as of late (.926 OPS in June), but due to his abysmal numbers in April and May his overall numbers don't look good. Honestly, I think it has to do with his very mechanical swing and missing most of 2011. I'm hoping after his good June he can build on that and have a solid second half.
