Back in ’09 a little guy came out of Georgia and captured the collective imaginations of the card-collecting world. Mr. Gordon Beckham, the fiery young infielder for the White Sox. He hit .270 with 14 homeruns and 63 RBIs in 103 games. He seemed like a couldn’t lose prospect. I went out and spent a couple of bucks on this beauty.
Since then he has decreased in almost every category each year. His average is heading towards Mendoza line territory.
I hope he can turn it around; I would hate to think I spent about 30 bucks on a .230 hitter.
