Slow Starters: NL edition

A couple days ago, I posted my list of slow starters in the AL.  Now it’s the NL’s turn. 

Stats as of 4/27.


Dan Uggla, Atl .188, 8 rbis Those eight rbis come on 5 HR.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing.
Geovany Soto, Chi .227, 1 HR I’m thinking that unless Geo starts shaping up, his time is running out with the Cubs.
Ryan Dempster, Chi 1-2, 7.63 ERA Eight HR in 30 2/3 IP.  Yikes!
Hanley Ramirez, Fla .211, 3 SB hitting the same as John Buck
Carlos Lee, Hou .207 …but does have 13 rbis
J.A. Happ, Hou 1-3, 6.94 ERA lack of control isn’t helping
Jonathon Niese, NY 1-3, 5.10 ERA workhorse is leading Mets in IP, though
Albert Pujols, StL .250, 8 EBH I know he’s got 17 rbis but have you noticed?  He’s got more Ks than walks so far.
Madison Bumgarner, SF 0-3, 7.79 ERA I think a lot was expected from this Giant hurler
