Chronic back problems? Lol.
Amazes me how some people get carried away over one injury. Did you see the 502 foot home run that dented the stadium last year? He hit it after the injury. Take a look at his splits last year before and after the injury. Did you see Sportscenter last night? He's healthy. Not a doubt in my mind about it.
Vlad is healthy and should be running. I'm chalking up 20 steals with anything over that as gravy.
Yes CHRONIC.. means continuous! He had back problems before the disk problem last year
.. If you notice with my predictions, (Even with chronic back problems) His power numbers go up
, but there is no doubt he won't run like he used to... He has CHRONIC back trouble.. He is getting cortizone injections regular.. (because of a CHRONIC back problem) This doesn't mean he isn't a STUD.. just the reason why he, and the Angels won't risk running him as much as he did prior to last season..Yes you run in the outfield, but sliding into second is a risk for any player
.. let a lone someone with a CHRONIC back problem.. even with his CHRONIC back problem.. Vlad will still hit .330 50+ HR's 140 RBI's score 100 runs, but he may only steal 10 bases.. that is all I'm saying.. (If he steals 20, it's still a lot less running than he did prior to last year!)
Remember this is only..OUR OPINIONS
