Parents should have arranged for deodorant instead
Dom was definitely playing injured this year and it could explain why the guy had no power behind his swing at all...even Dom's first couple of years with the sleep apnea, he was still putting up a near .200 ISO...his ISO this season was .119...I'm not saying let's run him back out there as an everyday OFer, but he's not as bad as he hit this year...once he gets the full offseason to rest his groin injury, he might see some power returnAnyone even consider that McNeil was hurt most of the year? Or that Dom may be another Hojo type? Most of you would have bailed on Johnson after his '90 season. He went from a .928 OPS and 169 OPS+ in 89 to a .753 OPS and a 106 OPS+ in 1990. Those of us old enough to remember him know he was inexplicably good one year and average the next. Not saying give Dom a starting job but to cut ties with a guy under team control after a down year is just terrible asset management.
McNeil, who knows....it feels like the league has just figured him out...he needs to do some homework...it doesn't seem like it was anything physically wrong with him because he was hitting the ball hard, but it was always right at people
