If you've seen a large number of Ranger games, you know he has been hitting a TON of doubles, several of them have been hit off the wall. It won't be much longer until the Texas heat carries those balls out of the ballpark.

That reminds me of a hilarious call from an old Expos game. The announcer (Singleton I think) saw a well hit line drive and says:
"That's a well hit ball that will go for extra bases" the ball clears the fence...pause "about 4 of them"

Greateast. Call. Evar

In 2001 and 2002, he was a young player in his first years in the majors. Not many players that average 23 homeruns in their prime (2004 and 2005 he averaged 23) hit many homeruns when they are just 24.

Now, since he has developed and matured, he has turned into a decent power hitter. (especially for a ss) Now that he is 29 years old and a guy that has proven that he can hit 20+ hr's, he should be hitting that number every year. Yea, he hit for little power when he was a rookie, but that isn't what matters right now, because he is a better ballplayer than he was then, and there is no reason that his power should fall. ;-D
