Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored during the Rockies' 10-3 win over the Mets on Friday.
Morneau had just recently lost his 13-game hit streak but is starting a new one back up here in May with two in a row, including his 11th multi-hit game of the season. It seemed like a no-brainer to draft Morneau this year as the concussion symptoms were gone and he was moving into a much more hitter-friendly ballpark. Those who were skeptics are now kicking themselves for not trusting, but obviously it's still early in the season and Morneau's health track record cannot be ignored. He just might be a fantastic sell-high right now.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
