He's a former 1st overall pick who is just turning 27, and aren't they moving Petco's fences in this year?
huge hr/fb rate spike last year (from 13.5% to 20.7%), his average versus lefties has been falling each of the last 3 years, along with his contract rate, and his fb% tanked in the second half last year, all the way down to 31%.
i don't think we'll see huge regression, and he certainly could get better, but I won't be paying for last year's stats.
also, i read one article about petco's fences being moved in, but it was on some random blog and the writer's informant was someone who happened to see various chalk lines in right field back in october while he was touring the stadium or something. is this really happening? have any major sources even reported the possibility?
