My vote is no. I say his stats will take a nose dive.

Agreed. Vinny's coming back to earth next season.

Anybody know what the stadium dimensions are at RFK (That's where they're playing next year, right)?

done.

Unless Ive overlooked something, his statistical averages are much much higher when he plays half his games in Coors - too high for it to be a coincidence.

A major nose dive. He hit something like .218/.281/.493/.774 away from Coors (though with more HR) last year. I don't think he'll be that bad, but at 37, I don't see a major improvement in those numbers.

After seeing him in Tampa for quite a few games (a few years ago), I thought his career was over with as slow as his bat speed was & am even more shocked his career is still going.

I'd expect a BA south of .250. A bit less production than they got out of Tony Batista this past year. I'll say 21 HR 68 RBI..

Vinny who?



I've already forgotten about him.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Yup, definitely done. Especially when you consider the dimensions of RFK. I think all football stadiums turn out to be pitcher's parks Oakland and Florida I belive are the two.

So if he's still with the team, Tony Armas might not be a bad back of rotation guy, or whatever other free agent lands with the Nationals.
