Anyone else feel Alou is in for a big season?

Postby StudentOfTheGame » Fri Jun 09, 2006 5:12 pm

The numbers he has put up in the games he has played are sick. He'll be behind Bonds for most of the year and he should have a ton of RBI opportunities. So many times I've seen teams intentionally pass Bonds to get to the next hitter. Well, this year Alou will be the guy waiting on deck to take advantage. Alou has been a great clutch hitter over his career so I think he could have a big year hitting behind Barry.

I see .295/30/110..

Am I expecting too much? I just traded Papelbon for Alou and Jimmy Rollins, and I feel like I have a pretty good OF in Alou now.

He old and injury prone. He should put up good numbers if he and barry stay healthy but thats a big if.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

The year was 1998 and Mambo #5 was sweeping the nation.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

Injury prone? He has atleast 420 ABs in his last nine seasons...He's just coming off a sprained ankle, but I expect him to stay healthy for the rest of the year and get 500-600 ABs.

Replacement player in shallow leagues. #3 OF at best. Solid but nothing exciting. Doubt he hits 30 HRs.

If you guys are trying to say that he's too old, he hit 39 homers two seasons ago for the Cubs...I dont think he's done yet.

Yeah and ummm... Wrigley is a much easier place to hit HRs than ummm SBC??

Alou has hit 7 of his 8 homers this season in SBC.....I admit, it is a factor, but its not going to single-handedly destroy his power numbers. He could easily hit 30.

Man, I'm just nostalgic. I even have Alou on a team, and have been eagerly awaiting his arrival from the DL. I do think that he won't be powering anything near 35+ homers this year, but I do think he'll get a boatload of RBI behind Barry.
