Im a Sheff fan too, and I did the research cause I saw how low he is ranked on Yahoo this year, and considered drafting him.
I know its a small sample size but thats all he provided to work with.
Since he was injured, last year I could not use those stats, and he is 39 years old, and not 33. So what he did 3 years ago is givin you nothing but hope that he did not got any older.

I might still draft him though, and will hope Im wrong.

I think he's being underappreciated a great deal this year.

I like your research. But you seem to base a lot on those 2005 numbers vs the central. That season the White Sox had a great staff, and the Twins were pretty solid.

In 2007, the Twins look very weak after Johan, and the White Sox definitely won't be as good as the 2005 version. I sorta wonder how DH will affect him, but he should stay healthy and I think 290 25 90 90 are reasonable.

Your numbers are not far off my numbers, but people here expecting 2nd - 3rd round production out of him with 30 to 35 HR's .300 plus avg and 100+ runs and RBI's. And that wont happen.

BTW, Sheff's best numbers in the AL Central came against that 2005 version Twins. And with half of his games will be at Comerica where he could not hit against that bad Detroit (2005 and 2004 version) pitching, I dont see how would he hit there any better now.
