Reverse Curse Time
We all hoped John Mayberry's positive showing last season would carry over into the new one.
No such luck.
Mayberry doesn't seem to have a clue at the plate. The left-field or first base job was his to grab. All he had to do was hit about .275 with the same percentage of walks and power numbers as last season. No one was asking for a .300 hitter; just a consistent one with occasional power.
Clearly, 2011 was the aberration in a career that has never taken off.
So, sports fans, I am officially invoking the Reverse Curse in Mr. Mayberry's case.
He should start hitting any time now.
