Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post How bad did it go for Georgia baseball this year?

Thursday May 27, 2010

So bad that it’s even bringing down Gordon Beckham.

Beckham had a solid rookie year in 2009 with a .270 average and an OPS of .808 after being called up by the White Sox. He finished fifth in the AL Rookie of the Year voting and looked to be on the fast track to major league success.

This year hasn’t gone as well for Beckham. He’s hitting just .191, and a lack of power at the plate in 2010 has sent his OPS plummeting to just .524. His struggles have gotten to the point that some are wondering whether he might benefit from a trip down to AAA.

Man – when it turns south for the Diamond Dawgs not even its alums are safe.
