I see him at .270/.275, 15-18 HR, 70 RBI. I like his steals going up if Lopes stays on at first base coach (instead of say - replacing Charlie Manuel or becoming a bench coach when Jimy Williams replaces Manuel). He's trying to get the speed guys on the Phils to run smarter. Maybe 20 SBs if he gets on base enough.
Just a hunch.
I agree with this....Rowand is an average at best hitter. He can fill a void in your line up, but I wouldn't count on him. Consider him a pleasant surprise when he plays well and expect him to be average at best.
