"Nyjer Morgan Scuffling" | FanGraphs Fantasy Baseball - David Golebiewski

"Unfortunately, Morgan has fallen well short of those projections: he’s got a .248/.310/.326 triple-slash in 287 PA, with a .283 wOBA that puts him in the same company as out-making luminaries like Orlando Cabrera and Jason Kendall..."

"In an effort to turn the page, I have decided to make an effort to get to know the KC Royals a bit better and see what we are up against over the next 3 days. Many of these AL teams are a bit unfamiliar to me, and I'd like to get a better sense of what strengths and weaknesses they bring to the table..."
