Over his last 215 Plate Appearances of 2009, Randy Winn fashioned the following BA/OBP/SLG line: .228/.300/.275
And, that’s not good.
But, in his first 382 Plate Appearances of 2009, Winn had the following BA/OBP/SLG line: .281/.328/.395
Granted, an OPS of 723 isn’t All-Star material. But, maybe there’s a story behind the drop-off last season. Via USA Today last July 31st:
Giants OF Randy Winn was a late arrival at the ballpark following the death of his father-in-law.
That’s just about the time Winn went into a slump. It could have been a family issue with his wife’s father…or her sister, as a result of the father’s passing (that was messing with his head)?
In any event, I’m sure the Yankees did their homework on this one before signing the player to a contract…right?
