It looks like he's just never going to get there. Anyone think there's a chance he could even revert to his old form? He has hit for some nice power this year but he just doesn't drive in runs and is hitting for a very poor average.
I will always remember his insane streak a few years ago, though. 10 HR in 10 games in May of 2006!
Bay has a career .890 OPS, with an .882 OPS at the moment. No, he probably isn't getting any better at this point, but he's basically a star.
I actually owned Bay in my keeper league a few years ago...and I never really thought he would steal 15-20 bases consistently or hit 40 HR.
