Found June 14, 2013 on Fangraphs:
In 150 at-bats back in 2011, Brett Lawrie captured our attention and imagination. “If he could hit nine homers in such a short time, Lawrie could have 30-homer potential over the course of a full season,” is likely a sentence you read before the 2012 season.

Adam Lind followed up a sublime 2011 campaign with one of the biggest flops of all time. After hitting 26 homers in 2011, he hit only 11 in 2012, and he only scored 28 runs while knocking in a measly 45.
