That's what I projected for him at the start of the season, and I'm sticking with it... Notice that his isoOBP is still very high, so his eye at the plate is fine. It'll come to him.

Why wouldn't he be able to repeat those numbers? That's what he did last year, with less SB (Just because Bobby didn't run with him... I think he'll get his chances in LA)

Dunn is slumping a bit as well.


those are VERY hefty projections for drew..


Hefty as in INSANE!!!


i thought insane might be a bit too harsh, so i took the polite road with just a little subtle sarcasm.


Hefty? Insane? He just about posted those numbers last year.

I wish I could be in your league. That's thirty-five out of, what, 500? He still has more walks than strikeouts. Be patient.

Yep, he posted those numbers last year, in a much better hitting park, with a much better offense and actually stayed heatlthy for the first time ever, and coincidently enough, in a contract year. No hope of any of that being duplicated again in that stadium with that offense.

Their was a book written called " 3 Night in August' by Buzz something , anyway it was about Tony LaRussa and he KILLS Drew in it, saying all he cares about is money not winning & not personal performance, last year was also contract year , hes got his money ina bad ballpark to hit, i dont see Drew doing much this year at all

Chavez Ravine is just about the same as Turner Field, so that doesn't matter. He's not hurt, so sitting out games with petty injuries isn't the problem. Sure, he got his payday, but he's not just going to stop playing baseball. Remember, he doesn't like the 11 Million he's being payed right now, and he has an out clause in his contract, so if anything, he'll be working just as hard for more money. These arguments don't make sense, he's in a slump.
