I’m still firmly convinced that Edwin Encarnacion is breaking out of his slump as we speak. Sure, he’s my second-favorite Red (after Adam Dunn), so this may be wishful thinking, but so? Leave me alone. I’ll believe what I want to believe.
On a more serious note, Slyde has another great examination of FanGraphs data, this time focusing on Encarnacion’s season. It’s definitely worth a read.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
