I think you answered your own question, he will of course see more fastballs with Bobby Abreu on deck, who also has his share of walks. He will also score a lot more runs with Abreu, Burrell and Howard behind him.
RBI production will go down quite a bit though, I will be pretty surprised if he hits 80 RBI's this year batting in the #2 slot...thats if he stays there all year.
