I can’t believe it’s been that long since my last entry on this blog, but being a teacher in my last two weeks of school is the reason. The interesting thing is that Andre up until this last week, really hasn’t done too much. In fact, he was in a pretty big slump, and was just showing signs of coming out of it when all of a sudden this last week, he has come back to being the Andre we know he can be.
I am one of the faithful bloggers on Inside the Dodgers (ITD), and it has been talked about how when young players go through major slumps like Andre did and survive it, it just makes them that much stronger of a ballplayer later on and shows they are well on their way to be a big time major league player. Well, in the last few days, Andre has, once again, made a name for himself in the MLB media train. And this time without the “so-called” help of Manny Ramirez.
It was also reported on ITD that this is the 6th time in two years that Andre has had a walk-off hit, and that he is the only one to do that in the entire league.
Also, during the first 6 days in June, he has had 4 runs, 9 hits, in which 3 were doubles and 3 were home runs, and 5 RBI’s. His batting average for June is .391, with an OBP of .417 and a SLG of .913. Andre may not have had a stellar May, but he is having a tremendous start to the month of June.
I will be back tomorrow with my Everyday Dre Sunday Stats.
