I would expect pretty close to his normal production this year. .300, 110 runs, 15 homers, 15 steals, 70 rbis.

No different than most big leaguers...

I'd expect the normal production from Damon this year.
He'll get 120+ runs.

It's only been 3 weeks. I think he will be just fine, and since people seem worried, I guess I should start making trade offers to buy low on him. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Everyone's missing the most-obvious reason for Damon's slow start.

The hair! His power was in his hair!

On the other hand, it could be that he's going to hit exactly what he's hit the last 3 seasons AWAY from Fenway park:

At Fenway: .318/.388/.448, .836 OPS
Away: .278/.340/.433, .773 OPS

So far this year: .278/.346/.417, 763 OPS

That's pretty much what he's done on the road the last 3 years.

2006:
Home: .280/.321/.440, .761 OPS
Away: .277/.358/.404, .762 OPS

It looks to me like this is his established level:
something like .275/.345/.425, .770 OPS
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

Exactly. In Fenway he was hitting .300+, but Fenway heavily inflates BA. Yankee Stadium is basically neutral. His other numbers should be nice, but the BA could stay in the .275-.280 range.
