Palmeiro to Orioles

After digesting this signing I think the O's may better off missing out on Vlad. Now they have a cheap (4M) Palmeiro with plenty of cash to bring back Ponson. Losing Jason Johnson is huge and they have to replace him.

Palmeiro at home in 2002

Palmeiro on road in 2002

278ABs/56R/21HRs/59RBIs/.281BA
Palmeiro on road 2002
283ABs/36R/17HRs/53RBIs/.240BA

Prediction, Palmeiro in 2004

550ABs/75R/35HRs/90RBIs/.235BA

Probably a lot less than what most fantasy players or the Orioles will expect.

Now since the O's lost out on Vlad, I would not be surprised at all if they sign Pudge. ;-D

Well, I was low on the BA, high on the dingers, and pretty damn close on the others (550 ABs, 68 R, 88 RBIs)

But, hey, I guess I have no idea what Palmeiro will do this year.

Just searched on "Palmeiro" with me as author. I've had this discussion about Palmeiro about half a dozen times since the Orioles picked him up again.

Tons of people have failed to notice that his decline has been very significant and steady since at least 2001, but it's masked because of the Texas launching pad and because people weren't playing attention to his lefty splits.

Palmeiro's on track to get 30-60 fewer ABs than he did last year, because he can't hit lefties and will sit against some of them. Despite his hot streak, his SLG is still below .450. He's got nothing by warning track power left.

But, for some reason people think he's going to hit HRs and drive in runs the way he did in Texas 5 or 6 years ago. In fact, since he'll play in fewer games, they seem to believe he'll do it at an even faster rate than he did when he was in Texas with Canseco.
