I'm saying he'll do equal to or better than last year. It was hit first season in the AL (in a long time or ever, not gonna look it up) and he started out sluggishly, but the Sheff was cookin' after that
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
His numbers last year were amazing and thats with a bum shoulder that he said hurt a ton. Remember when he had a huge homerun drought at the beginning on the season?? And he still ended up with a ton of homers. This year he will actually be healthy.Hes gonna have a huge year.
Look at what he did last year with a bum shoulder and a slow start. Finished, what, third in MVP voting?
His age doesn't scare me, but the swirling steroid rumors do. One thing people forget about steroids is they can help keep you from breaking down over the wear-and-tear of the season. It's not just the big muscles.
Still, I peg him as a mid- to late-second rounder who will easily put up first-round worthy numbers if he plays all year. He is a beast.
