The speculation was that his bat had slowed and he couldn't handle the inside heat anymore. Lately, that hasn't been the case. His bat speed through the zone looks as fast as it ever has been and that was the only reason why he was expected to have a down year. It's almost like he has a chip on his shoulder from being tossed out of town by George when he got Giambi. That type of motivation, plus the fact he LOVES NY fans, has really sped up his bat. He did hit 23 homers in 450 AB's last year and I'd expect him to get a similar number of AB's this season. The high inside fastball was always his bread and butter and the last couple years he has been struggling with it because of bat speed. That isn't the problem anymore and aside from against lefties who throw junk (i.e. Moyer tonight) he should put up impressive power numbers this year and belongs in your lineup unless you have a top 5-6 1B, especially with his position in the lineup.
