It has been a very frustrating start to 2013. Grades through roughly the first third of the season. It is easy to see why we are where we are.
Russell - On pace to pitch 88 games - don't burn him out
Gregg - pleasant surprise - most likely to drop
Wood - I like everything I have seen from him this year
Feldman - Why do I feel he will not be here in Aug
Shark - Most of 6 losses have not been his fault
Rizzo (barely) - Got to get the average up
Schierholz (barely) - It just seems like he is playing better, but he is on pace for 20 HRs and 68 RBI's which is a fairly average total for a RF
Soriano - April was crappy, May was much better
DDJ - Defintion of average or remarkably unspectacular
Valbuena - though he has exceeded expectations, let's face it - he is average
Castillo - Got to hit for power and get better at blocking balls
Navarro - PH he has been great, behind the plate (home plate that is) not so much
Villanueva - Sveum is not utilizing him correctly
Castro - Frustrating
Barney - Punchless
Hairston - Needs to hit for average
Borbon - Not the spark off the bench I was expecting , but has some tools
Sveum - Manage the bullpen better!
Rondon - Raw and unpolished and it shows
Marmol - Please DFA
Jackson - Needs a fire lit, most likely to improve (as it will be hard to be worse)
Camp - At times worse than Marmol
And there you have it. Let me know what you think!
