Anyone remember hearing about how Lopez blamed his struggles during the first half of the season on some "personal issues". He said that those issues are resolved but right now he is looking just like he looked for much of the season. just not getting it done at the plate
When Guzman went down in June I suggested we trade for Wilson Betimen which we could have gotten for a secondary relief pitcher like the Yankees did. It would have given us some options and maybe kept Lopez at 2nd or at least some competition instead of this loser Jimemez coming off the bench.
The bottom line is that if Lopez had a season like he was supposed too (,270-.280/OBP.340-370) we would have won another 4-7 games easy.
