He'll post better numbers in EVERY category EXCEPT MAYBE HR's and Im not willing to conceed HR's to ortiz either. Texas has been drooling over this guy for a while.
Though he might have gotten himself in the doghouse with Hicks with his comments yesterday.
Ortiz - because I'm a Red Sox homer.
And who ARE you 'come on' ing?
The only thing Tex is really close to Ortiz on IS HRs. Everything else Tex is still a cut below. I don't see where he is going to get the opportunities to drive in 139 in Texas. Arod's career year there was 02 when he went .300/57/142. He had to jack 57 to drive in 142. Tex ain't hitting 50+ HRs this year.
Tex is good, but you're getting ahead of yourself. And, as mentioned, Ortiz isn't exactly over the hill.
