I did a check on Aaron Hill's laughable numbers just now. It seems like he's getting a little unlucky at the plate. His BABIP is .280. His LD% is 20. Same GB% and FB% as when he broke out in 2009. Granted there is a real power outage in his swing, but we all know that power is what this guy does best.

Is this a guy we should start buying super low? I mean I could probably swing Nate McClouth straight up for him right now, but I'd rather have some reassurance that his performance thus far is mainly luck and not something else.

As a Jays fan, I dont think we see 2009 Aaron Hill again. Well at least not this year, but I hope I'm wrong. He is adjusting his swing currently and just doesnt seem to be right at the plate and hasnt seemed like 09' Hill since, well 2009.

I watched him yesterday (single and a double) but he looks a little scared or not confident at the plate. Makes me wonder how I can upgrade the spot but hoping he gives me a hr this week to hold me over...
