He might get a little jolt moving into the potent Yankees lineup, but I suspect he still won't hit more than .260 the rest of the way out.
Olerud is in his decline ever since he left the Mets. Like most Yankees, he will do pretty good for the first week or so, then become his normal self again. He's a consistent, reliable option (ral life) at 1B while Giambi is gone than Clark may be, and it's probably because of defense.
