I think DeJong is done as well. His career has been a steady decline in offensive production, getting worse each year. With that consistent downward trend, it is tough to think that he can suddenly reverse what 5 years of data is showing. Great guy – too bad he can’t hit.
Question is why isn’t Sosa being given the same consistent opportunity Dejong got?
There are about 17 million reasons.
I am becoming concerned that the two guys who popped out of last season’s outfield shuffle may be coming down with PDJ syndrome. All three starting outfields for that matter. All below .300 OBP with pitiful OPS. There is plenty of talent, same as with Dejong. In all three cases some really bad looking ABs.
