before someone jumps on his home away splits, ive got to post this.

arlington is not that great for right handed pull hitters (which he is).
and yes i like him a lot. i doubt hes going to finish over 300(maybey though), but i bet once the year is done he will be around .290, with homeruns/rbis that would have been on pace for maybey 23/95 or something if it was a full season. A solid fantasy 2b as a rookie. If he ever puts on some more weight his power could go up, because he definitely puts a homerun swing on a lot of pitches.
I wish showalter would let him steal a few more bases though.
Better leave him in the 6th spot in the order to. Unless derosa/gmj falls off a cliff then he could be 2 spot or something.
i also really liked how quickly ian got out of his slump. he slumped for like a week or 10 days, and then over the next week he completely erased all the slump stats by going like 16/33 or something.
