Wells seems to be a totally different hitter when he has a good power hitter behind him. His career year in '03, occured the same year that Delgado went on that monstrous tear. In 2004, Delgado was still there, but both of them had their injury problems and were never really able to put anything together. Then in 2005, Shea Hillenbrand batted cleanup.
That project didn't turn out too well for anybody.
With Glaus here, it looks like he's back to being his '03 self. I really think 200 hits, 35 HR, a .300 AVG, and 110 RBIs are within the realm of possibility this year. I'm even beginning to wonder why I traded the guy for Prior.
