    Does anyone every recall a MLB player just flat lose it during the season like he has? After he hit those three Homers against the Pirates and they made fun of him and called him out, he has done noting. Like one homer in a half of a season. I am surprised the Reds did not release him. Any else remember a fall from grace like this?

    It's pretty crazy. I was talking to my buddy about it in late July.

    I think pitchers just quit throwing him fastballs and he couldnt do anything.

    The better question here is how in the heck did he do what he did in the 1st half of the season. That is the stunning part of his performance this year.
