Fukudome sits 2 of last 3 before break

Is he injured? Tired? Benched? I can understand giving him a day off but 2 out of 3, not to mention we are facing a nasty RH.

He was supposed to miss yesterday's game as well, but he asked Lou to play him. I think Lou is giving him a much needed rest since he is in such a slump.

Has anyone spotted him in the dugout.

Maybe he flew back to Japan to eat some octopus. (joke fyi)

I just think he is worn out.

They play 135 games between the eight-month span, which is less than the 162 game season of the MLB.

I knew they played fewer games. I had no idea it was over 8 months though. Imagine if that was us- I go about half nuts during the All Star break with 4 days off.

We are guranteed to go in with at least a 4 game lead so sitting Fuku is the right decision, he has looked a tad tired out there so give him some rest and hopefully after the AS game, he comes back refreshed and swinging a lot better.

Maybe he did need a day off, however if he was in the lineup today the score would be 0-0 instead of 3-0, likely, because Dero had a horrible misplay in RF.

i was hoping he would get passed in the AS voting. He isnt the best 3rd OF in the NL, and he could use a weeks rest

Not often DeRo makes a mistake, everyone is allowed one or two... happy he is sitting and resting despite the current score.
