Thanks
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

For the rest of the year assuming he is not platooned....he should hit 17-22hr, 55-70rbi's, 50-60runs, steal a few bases, and hit around .255-.265......solid but not spectacular. ;-D

I don't think that he will show much for average, but he definitely has the pop. I would guesstimate that he will be in the .270-.280 range with around 20 HRs. Don't expect to see too many RBI's from him though, since that lineup won't provide him with many RBI opportunities.

.270 might be a bit generous for his first season, considering his free-swinging and pull-hitting tendencies, but I could see the 20 HR and more RBI than you think actually. He can be a solid #4-5 OF IMO - all Mariner's homer love aside ;-)
