He was doing it AB to AB during the game itself. This year with the new ruling he can't.

 

good he shouldnt be allowed to. its unfair to people who actuall play defense

 

its probably a combination of natural decline, not watching tape, and not stealing signs like 2018 (thought covid made us forget that one didnt you sox fans hehe)

Nobody was drafting JD to get 2018 numbers lol.  You drafted him for the average and the power.  He's still one of the best pure hitters in the majors and I have confidence he will turn it around.  I agree most of it is mental.  Hopefully today sparks some good production.  

 

PS: Some people are saying that his statcast numbers suck.  They do suck.  But trying to do statcast numbers on a 16 game sample is also very lol.  there are a lot of stars struggling with statcast numbers.  All statcast numbers show is whether they have been lucky or not so far, based on how hard they've hit the ball and whatnot- not whether they will continue to suck in the future.  So yeah JD hasn't been smoking the ball and getting unlucky, he's just been in a slump, but that doesn't mean he will continue to do that.

Grand slam!

I had been concerned about J.D. but this week, he seems to be starting the process of getting on track. Happy Happy Happy.
