The Incredibly Streaky ... Jhonny Peralta.

I am amazed at a player that ebbs and flows so much as Jhonny. Check out his first two months in 2007 and 2008:

2007

Apr 2 - Apr 14: .321 BA .948 OPS

Apr 15 - May 14: .223 BA .748 OPS (buoyed by 6 HRs)

May 15 - May 29: .389 BA 1.049 OPS

2008

Mar 31 - Apr 11: .324 BA .991 OPS

Apr 12 - May 13: .149 BA .480 OPS (ouch)

May 14 - May 30: .308 BA 1.060 OPS

 

Almost mirror images and really show you how maddening Jhonny's performance can be. He has been around for so long, we forget he is only 26 years old. He could have a season where he "puts it all together" and minimized these cold streaks. If he can do that ... wow .. it would be some spectacular numbers overall.

So, why are fans always eager to show him the door? He will probably be our top homerun hitter for the season (unless Grady really breaks out) on a team that has recently relied on the homerun to even have a chance of winning any games. It would be a huge folly to even consider trading him for the next few years, regardless of what our record is.
