Melky's June Swoon Continues
After an 0-5 night, Melky Cabrera is now batting .169 this month. Now you might say, so what, his OBP is high. True, his .308 June OBP is not horrible, but come on. That's stretching it a little. Take a look at his slugging percentage. For June, it's .231. Of his 11 June hits, only two have been extra bases - one homer, and one double. And his seasonal slugging average is only .313. I'm sorry, that is just not getting it done, especially if you're a corner outfielder. If you're Omar Vizquel maybe, but .313 slugging is horrendous.
