You're kidding yourself if you put more weight into his numbers last season than you do his 2003 and 2004 seasons. Loretta was injured last season; you try swinging a bat with a wrist injury. This is a guy who hit .335 just a season ago with an .886 OPS. He's worth more than Wells and Mirabelli by himself, let alone with Otsuka.
