The Strange Case of Khalil Greene

Posted by cuorange on July 7, 2009

Khalil GreeneWith his once promising career headed in a downward spiral as he is placed on the disabled list for the second time  this season for social anxiety disorder one wonders if he will ever be the same.

From one of the greatest seasons in college baseball history(.480, 26 HR, 30 doubles, .557 on base percentage, .888 slugging percentage, 91 RBI), to #1 draft pick, to a quick trip to the big leagues and 27 HRs in 2007 to this.  Even hitting 3 HR in three games after his first stint on the DL didn’t save him from an 0-16 slump that followed and another trip to the DL.

At one time his Baha’i faith was reported to be the reason for Greene’s calmness and serentity and the quiet of San Diego the best place for him to be.   A trade to St. Louis and a move to third base later, he finds himself being told to stay away from the team.   A strange case indeed.
