He never had an OPS above .764 until his final AAA season. And the fact that he hasn't ever had a good BB/K ratio with a terrible OBP I think he will decline. There are only a handful of players that can have a terrible OBP and BB/K ratio and be real good players.
.270 21 75 70 2 - This seems more likely but he has plenty of years ahead of him to get back to his '05 #'s.
Thats what I was looking for, thank youwrveres wrote:I know everybody is impressed with his 28 homers last season, but I would be remiss if I didn't point out that he had a grand total of 40 HR's in over 2300 minor league AB's ... and he wasn't big doubles hitter in the minors either. A minor league SLG% under .400 should raise some eyebrows too. Where did all of this power come from?
I personally would not be trading for him, as his value is at its highest right now, and that is a cardinal sin when trading. I also will not be targeting him next season either, as he will be very overrated.
