Because he's a career .268 hitter, he hasn't played more than 126 games in five years, he hasn't hit more than 16 home runs in that same span, he has had ONE season with more than 275 at bats in that span... in his career he's batted in over 100 only twice; his third and fourth year's respectively. He gets hurt if he plays everyday, it's a not a risk... it's a promise. His numbers are great if he can stay healthy, but he can't. He's the best pinch hitter in baseball this year, but that's all he is. If you think Tony Clark is an everyday first basemen you're fooling yourself. He's playing way, way above his head and if he played everyday... not only would he get hurt, his numbers wouldn't be even close to that. Over the span of 400 some at bats in the course of a season, you would end up seeing around .270/23/80 and that would be a GOOD year for him.
Don't be fooled by his monster numbers, they're not what they seem.
