1. he's a stude and this was his breakout year. he'll be a top-5 3b for the next 7 years
2. this was a career year. he'll never again match these numbers, and 2005 will look sickeningly like 2003.
Are you saying that it's either or??
I just don't really see anything in between. afaik, this season came out of nowhere. that either means (in my mind, anyways) that something major changed in the offseason and that's why he's doing well, or it's just a fluke. if he changed something (with his swing, workout regimin, anything that could be responsible for this year) then he'll probably keep doing that and be around for many good years. or it's just a fluke and he'll be a bust next year.
and while i'm at it:
How am I biased? I have numbers to back me up
no, you don't. if you want to controdict me, please show us the numbers you have that describe how aramis ramirez will be better than chipper the rest of the way. you claim to have them. please share.
