he will regress but I won't be surprised if he improves his HR and AVG numbers.
He should still put up good numbers.
I say a .310 avg. 30-35 HR's. The problem is he probably wont score 100 runs or hit in 100 RBI's and he wont swipe more than 5 bags.
Jacobs and Hermida need to step up. Hanley Ramirez and Josh Willingham havent been too bad but thats not exactly what I would call lineup protection, especially since none of them 2 hit directly before or after Cabrera.
