Why is nobody talking about Alvarez? The only comment that I can recall seeing is that he is a slow starter. I haven't gone over every ST game but it seems like he strikes out at least twice a game.... every game.... It appears that any ball with any movement is swung at and missed constantly. I must admit I started to worry about Alvarez last year but I put it down to my natural "glass half full and anything that can happen will always happen for the worst" attitude. I pray that I am wrong about this guy but my half full glass is evaporating with every strikeout.
