But shore nuff, he's going into his eigth full season and only just turned 28. Crazy! I agree that his supporting cast does have the potential to be a little better, but what about the years he played with Tejada, Giambi, Damon, Dye, etc? He's had some pretty darn good players along side him in that batting order before and still seems to put up very similar numbers year to year, barring injury. He seems a lock for .275-90-28-100-8 with 30 doubles and a .350 OBP. Not HOF numbers, but very solid in the realm of fantasy. I like him around the ninth round in 10-12 team roto leagues......
I love Chavez this year, and was trying to keep him quiet for a reaston. SHHHHH!
I'd actually bump your numbers a little bit. 34HR and 110RBI is where I have him.
Chavez, Beltre, and Aramis Ramirez are three people who a much younger than most people realize, due to the number of years they have played at the major league level.
