i dont expect wells to preform last years numbers like that again but i do expect him to have his pre all star stats as his full seasons stats this year i mean last year was a career year for him.

You think Wells had his career year at age 24? In his 2nd major league season? On what grounds are you basing that? And if he puts up his pre-All Star stats all season won't that translate into more HRs and more RBIs next year?

Sorry, I have to disagree with you. Wells is one to grab and hold onto in a keeper league. The best is yet to come.

405 1st half abs
273 2nd half abs

That's why i dislike 1st/2nd half splits. Everyone plays more games the 1st half, and in effect, most guys will have better hr/rbi numbers the 1st half. A better way to even it out, is split it like this, April/May/June versus July/August/Sept.

The hr split becomes a little better 20/13, versus 23/10.
The rbi split becomes a little better 77/41, versus 84/33.

If we look at other numbers, it's just that the Jays the first 2 months were off the charts scoring. Wells actually had a better ops the 2nd half, so i wouldn't be concerned. Remember, rbis are team dependent, Wells had no control on fewer chances later on.

338 oba to 2nd half 391 oba.
556 slugging to 542 2nd half, not a big drop.
If Wells ops had taken a big drop, then those numbers might apply.



And the break between the first half and the second half was even greater last year because the all-star game was about a week later than it usually is. I remember Delgado almost having 100 RBI's but it was almost halfway through the month at the break.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

I agree. Wells should continue to get better. :-) Hang on to him in keeper leagues. :-)
