The Condor Report: April 30th–May 6th

Card of the Week: 2009 Bowman Draft Red Base Parallel #1/1

Michael “The Condor” Saunders stats for the week of April 30th through May 6th:

AB: 26

Hits: 3

AVG: .115

Runs: 2

Doubles: 0

Home Runs: 1

RBI: 1

SB: 0

BB/K: 1/12

What Went Wrong? Coming off one of his best weeks in the majors Saunders looked completely lost at the plate, seemingly regressing to his form of a season ago. The Mariners centerfielder got behind far too often in counts and couldn’t fight back, as witnessed by his 12 strikeouts against just one walk. He had a few hard hit balls that couldn’t find a hole, but Saunders wasn’t doing himself any favors striking out nearly every other trip to the plate. A puzzling showing given his prior performance, The Condor will need to start putting the ball in play more often to keep his average north of the Mendoza Line and a firm grip on his starting job.

What Went Right? The lone highlight of the week was a line drive home run off talented Tampa Bay lefty Matt Moore on 5/1. Oddly enough, three of Saunders four home runs this season have come off southpaws. Hopefully there’s more to BACAW! about next week.

  1. What a totally inconsiderate week culminating on his second biggest fan’s birthday. Unbelievable.
