The Padres left fielder wears his care like a full body suit . It doesn’t take .532 OPS through 41 games to make him sinister. This is his standard expression in the field. He doesn’t play baseball so much as pursues it as if it wronged him in some way.

Pham has gotten to a point in the last month where he had to be one of the most productive players in the majors, only to be back close to the player the padres believed they acquired in December 2019.

That was fine. He talked about it soberly a few times during the first two months of the season. He knows what it takes to be a major league baseball player.

“Everyone has 150 bad at-bats,” he said again on Monday. “Mine happened to be in April. So now I have to do everything I can to balance it all out. It’s a frustrating game. You can do everything right and still not benefit from it. ”

What was wrong in his opinion was that he had to deal with a lot of noise while he was working on getting his swing right.

“Today, social media kind of makes it worse,” he said. “Some fans think they’re better baseball players than me, I think.”

Some of that he has no choice but to hear when he’s in left field.

“The fans have been great this year disrespectful, “said Pham. “I actually saw a fan talking to me (trash). I saw him outside the stadium. I said what’s up Do you still want to talk (trash)? ”He went completely blank. It just goes to show that people feel legitimate. ”

That was at Petco Park, where he said it was” normal “for people to ridicule him about an off-season incident in which he was stabbed and operated on had to become. More common is the kind of offensive language and gestures that led him to have a fan removed in Houston.

“I need to talk to MLB,” he said. “The vulgarity this year, the gestures, I’ve never seen it at this level. I want to know if that’s just because the fans have been gone for a year and are now back and behaving in a certain way. That (stuff) should not be tolerated. ”

“ It is important to us to ensure the safety of our staff on the field and our fans. We will continue to invest resources to emphasize and enforce the applicable laws and codes of conduct and to provide a pleasant experience in our ballpark. ”

Pham beats .325 / .460 / .563 in his last 22 games. Its on-base percentage is the fifth highest in the majors in this range. He’s also stolen five bases in the last eight games.

“I need to turn on the power,” he said. “The doubles and homers have to catch up.”

He starts to hit the ball harder in the air. A home run on Sunday in New York and a double Monday night against the Rockies were just his third and fourth extra base hits in his last 50 at-bats.

“The only thing missing in my game is consistency with the force, “said Pham. “I’m still working on it. Power, it comes in bundles. But there is also an element of consistency. I always feel like I want to leave a series with an extra base hit or two.”

He has one .944 OPS since May 30th, the day the Padres started their current 4-11 run. He is the only Padres batter with an OPS greater than 0.749 on this distance.

But he believes To be one of the most talented players in the game. He expects more.

This is a guy who, from 2017 to ’19, featured three-time American League MVP Mike Trout, 2018 NL MVP Christian Yelich and AL MVP In 2018, Mookie Betts was the only Major Leaguers to join with a percentage of at least 0.380 on the base and 50 stolen bases. His .856 OPS in this range finished in 27th place.

The only time he was in a 10- minute conversation on Monday sounded more worried than when he was talking about abuse by fans than he was his own shortcoming in terms of production.

“I didn’t feel like I had big games,” he said. “I only had one three hit game and that was three singles. I haven’t erupted yet, and it’s mid-June. So, I mean, it can be one of two things. Either these teams have a handful coming, or I have to come up with something. “
