Looks like natural progression to me.
he more than doubled his career high in home runs, stole as many bases as the previous three years combined, hit 41 points above his career batting average, and scored more than 80 runs for the first time. These numbers will come back to earth.
He was never healthy in Seattle. Hence, more games played in Detroit = higher numbers across the board.
I'm in the 'progression' camp on this guy ... though I do recognize him as a continuing injury risk
not exatcly. he played 140 games in 01, then in 02 he played 134, which are similar to his number of games in 04, 136. his number of ABs were the ones that increased. i agree though that more PT could mean better numbers. however i'm still not sure about him. a good thing is that his AVG went up considerably and i think that's a better sign than him doubling his power numbers. he could be another melvin mora, but right now i just don't know.
