I can understand, even if I am getting impatient with him.  If you can stomach the batting average, he should be a good source of HR's and RBI's.  Who knows if he'll ever get his average up to the usual .260 range, but the power is likely legit.

The hot/cold drives me nuts though. He's like Justin Upton and Jay Bruce circa 2013...win you a match up or will drain you. Thing is with guys like this, you never start them when they have their big games so it all goes to waste.

And did just that for me. I will never roster this guy on my team again. He can go suck it. ugh.

I knocked this guy a few weeks ago, but he faces all righties this coming week and against the white sox and twins no less. Might be a good week to stream him...

Don't look now, but that BABIP correction is in full swing... weather heating up and super productive the last 2 weeks.

FYI -- Even through the rough patch, he's still on pace for 33 HR and 96 RBI... if he heats up this summer we can easily reap 35+ HR and 100+ RBI.

 

Ranks 4th in HR and 5th in RBI for 1B.

Lol...how is he "overrated" exactly?  He wasn't drafted in many leagues.  He's owned in many leagues now.  That doesn't scream "overrated" to me.  Nobody is declaring him a fantasy MVP.  He's a CI/UTIL for most people, and he's just fine in that role.  It's not like anyone is using him as their starting 1B and expecting top 12 1B numbers from him.  So, please explain how he's "overrated".

Alonso (196 AB): 26 R, 11 HR, 34 RBI, .240 AVG, .312 OBP

Encarnacion (209 AB): 31 R, 16 HR, 40 RBI, .244 AVG, .319 OBP
Sano (129 AB): 16 R, 7 HR, 25 RBI, .202 AVG, .273 OBP

 

Hoskins, Braun, Gallo, Desmond, Zimmerman, the list goes on.  Compared to most of these guys, Alonso wasn't even in the 1B discussion pre-season.  Who's overrated?

I don't see why it matters either.  He's on my fantasy team, but the Indians are in a pennant race and paying him millions of dollars. If it's good enough for them I'm fine with it.

It doesn’t matter to me either...

 

I was wondering if anybody knew what was the family emergency ... 

 

Calm your jets

He's got harsh platoon splits, but he's a pretty damn good hitter v. RHPs.

He should definitely be rostered in all 12-team leagues. Can't go with a 117 wRC+ and a .346 wOBA.

No chatter recently. He hit a pair last night. He now has 9 HR and 21 RBI in 117 ABs post-ASB. The BA is lacking in the 2nd half.

I think he's been owned and dropped 5 times in my league.  He's been tough to roster,  but i hope he turns it on for a run.  Prime spot in a good lineup,  he should produce more for fantasy than he has so far
