ops since 2000
*Yankees have six more games left.
this year hes on pace for
- 37 HR's, lowest since 97, his second full season in the majors.
- 63 XBH's, the lowest of any full season in his career.
- 133 SO's, career high.
- .292 BA, lowest since 99. second straight year he'll fail to hit .300
- both slug and ops 50 points below career 162-game average.
i'm thinkin that next year, he wont steal as many as this year. and Yankee stadium will continue to limit his HR total. that combined with the loss of SS eligibility (even though hes still the best SS in the majors) and single sligibility at 3B, a very deep position , kinda pulls his fantasy value down for next year.
or will he rebound real strong ?
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
