Did we all forget how good he was when he was relatively healthy in 2010? Granted it was the last year with the old bats, but he was our best hitter then, easily.
He hit .347/.481/.653 with 12 HR and 40 RBI. He was even better in SEC play at .356/.500/.644 with 6 HR and 21 RBI. Reaching base every other time he got to bat!
Last year, he had a horrible start, but I think he was injured? He was definitely in a slump to start, and sat on the bench for a couple games, if I remember correctly. At the end of March 2011, he was only hitting .250/.389/.386. He finished the year at .301/.425/.534 with 9 HR and 39 RBI. Led the team in HR, RBI, and OBP. Tied with Yarbrough with 14 doubles and second to Yarb in SLG to finish just ahead of Yarb in OPS.
This year so far he is only at .310/.356/.405. I think he is the epitome of a streak hitter. He'll go through some rough times, but then will absolutely tear the cover off of the ball. But he ain't exactly been chopped liver up there.
Kirksey has been the most impressive from '11 to '12 so far. Q has been outstanding. I've been impressed with Mathis from '11 to '12 so far with his .471 OBP. I just don't think Snyder has hit his stride, yet.
