look at his career stats. hes put up one good season and that was doing a contract year. its obvious he just plays for money. now that hes got a long term deal locked up with seattle i would stay as far away from him as possible. temper your expectations - he'll probably let you down.
I disagree. He doesn't just play for money. He tried to hit a 5 run hr every ab last year to justify his contract. He is a very sincere and caring individual. Being more relaxed this year, in a better offense, and a year of AL pitching under his belt, he's my pick for comeback player of the year.
Yoda, he will bury the 120 games a year, not so good road hitter, in LA, Nomar.
