How can you possibly say that last years power numbers were a fluke when he put up nearly indentical numbers the two years prior to last year?
In his first year in the bigs, at age 21, he hit 14 homers in only 69 games. The following year, he hit 27 homers, and last year he ended up with 26. Last year he got off to a hot start, then cooled off significantly (power wise) after the All-Star break. Now, he's just off to a slow start instead of a fast one. He'll pick it up, be patient.
I own him in my main dynasty league and I am in now way worried about his slow start. He's too talented and too hard of a worker to not find his way out of this slump. I would be very suprised if he ends the year with less then 20 homers.
