Dude is in a slump. I think we all knew it would happen too. It had to. He was Mike Trout the first week or so, but every young player is going to get exposed, then it’s on the player to make the next adjustment.
It would be silly to think Robert isn’t going to be an absolute star, but as it relates to Keuchle’s comment about “going through the motions..” it seems like Robert might fit that bill right now.
Just frustrating, we’re all frustrated as fans. So much hype coming into this season, and we actually saw glimpses of what this team could be like a week ago! The talent is still there, and they can absolutely turn this around and get hot again against some lackluster teams. But the fact is they don’t have the history to lean on. We’re all so used to this as Sox fans, it’s a history you simply can’t escape or ignore. The results the last decade speak for themselves. We all have a right to jump the gun so to speak. We’ve seen this movie far too many times.
Prove us wrong, White Sox. We’ll be thrilled.
