I don't think he'll match last year's batting average or obp but his homerun and production total might go up on account of experience. Much of his .299 BA was exaggerated by his monster april and may. But personally I have no problems giving him a job in an outfield of three. Lew clicked in the #3 spot and hit much better there than he did as a #2 hole guy. I think the twins saw this and will put him in the middle of the lineup more often this year. This will tranlate into much better homerun and rbi totals for Lew. And that's not to mention his 20/20 potential which is like icing on top of cake.

No, he is not. Rotoworld and every other site has ford as dh and stewart as their left fielder. Do you have an inside source? Because if not you would be wrong.

I have the same opinion as orange12 - ignore Lew's strong start and look at his second half stats from last year. That's his new baseline.

Pre all start he was
.307/.374/.466/ .840
After he was
.289/.389/.422/.811
which is within the margin of error (in other words there is no way of knowing whether the top or bottom is his real baseline).

On a month by month basis using OPS his months from best to worst are:April, July, June, August, May, September. I don't see a real trend of pitchers finding holes in those months.

I'm buying the Zips forecast: .301/.378/.448/.826

Thank you...That is exactly the input I was looking for... ;-D
