Russ is fine. His strikeouts and infield pop ups are up in July, but so are his walks. More importantly, he is swinging just as often, making contact just as often and hitting home runs just as often, even with the increased infield flies, as he has all season. The big difference is in the BABIP. That is flukey; do not worry over it. Russ is fine.
