Re-Bourn Identity

Postby TexasStampede » Fri May 08, 2009 5:44 pm

Haha sorry about the title I just couldnt resist. But seriously, what do you guys think of him this year? Instead of hitting his usual .230 he's hitting .300. Supposedly the 'Stros hitting coach worked with him a bunch this offseason. If he could hit .275 with Berkman and Lee behind him he could have an impact...

What kind of numbers do you project for him? Better than the likes of Morgan, Fowler, etc.?

Well, he's got the classic LD-supported, high BABIP. So if he can keep squaring up the ball, this BA is legit. I wouldn't count on that, though. He hasn't shown the ability to maintain an LD% this high before. He's well over his average of the last two years. So I'd bet on his BA dropping precipitously once he goes back to hitting more fly balls that can't clear the walls.

Positive note: He's walking more. ;-D
Negative note: That BB% is quickly declining. :-t

If I were a betting man, I'd bet on him coming hard back to earth here very, very soon. I wouldn't want him.

I don't think he was really a .230 hitter last season, he just played hurt for a lot of it. I think a .270 line is more likely than a .230 at the very least.
