And even then, he had a GREAT first-half and then tailed off big-time in the second half. Now, with Delgado gone, he has no real protection in that lineup. So...needless to say, I'm not that high on Wells.
2 years ago, in 2003, he hit .299 before the all-star break and .344 after the all-star break. His OPS went up almost 50 points.
I really wish ALL of my players would tail off and hit .344. That would be great...
EDIT: You might be right about Delgado's protection, but we'll have to wait and see on that one.
I still think .300-30-100-100 is well within reach for Ol' Vernon.
