We have our very own One Hit Wonder

For those of you not familiar with the term one hit wonder it came out of the music industry in the late 50's and early 60's and as the phrase suggests, it described an artist who had but one smash hit and never did anything of note again.

 

Well Rays fans, sadly Ben Zobrist is our very own one hit wonder. I need not detail his outstanding season of 2009 where he mashed 27 HR and had an OPS well over 900, played an excellent defense and was considered a steal in the Aubrey Huff deal..

 

And then it happened the calender turned to 2010. His slash line is251/356/354 a sparkling 711 OPS.

He has but 28 XBH compared to 65 last year. Take out but one month and here are his OPS numbers:

April  683

June  735

July 640

August  487 

In those months his HR totals are 0,1,1 and 1. Want more?

His OPS with 2 out and RISP is 672

His high leverage OPS a whopping613

 

And the beauty of all this, the Rays have committed $17 million dollars to this Nick Green clone over the next three seasons
