First off, this isnt some sort of negative take on things, just a realistic one.
We all knew Jose Iglesias would start to see his numbers balance out, or "come back to earth". The question was, just how hard of a landing would it be? Well here are his numbers for the month of July...
Came into July with a .409BA .455OBP .530SLG .985OPS.
BA .217 OBP .267 SLG .232 OPS .499 BAbip .254
1 XBH 11K 2BB
Both BA and OBP have dropped 70pts and over 100pts for SLG.
Hes at .343BA .391OBP .428SLG .819OPS with 6 games left in the month of July.
Any guesses where he ends up at?
I say about 260BA 330OBP and 390 SLG., which Ill gladly take for an MLB SS with solid D. But that also means I think his production is going to be pretty mediocre the rest of the way. I hope Im wrong because we can use all the offense we can get, but I dont think hes made it all the way down yet.
