Well, he did continue blasting the ball when he faced the Mets in NY last week, and Shea Stadium is a pitchers park as well. So, maybe it won't affect him that much.

Keeping my fingers crossed, since he's on my team also. :-o

I don't have actual #'s, but ESPN's fantasy shrink points out that Guillen actually had better #'s on the road, so I think the biggest obstacle will be facing new pitchers as opposed to the stadium. Plus, he's been on like 5 teams already, I don't know which ones, but at least one of them was probably in the AL.

His only AL team was Tampa Bay, which doesn't fill me with a lot of hope. :-o

He's played for Tampa Bay. He's bounced around so much, I don't think he'll have trouble picking up AL pitching, especially since he gets to NOT hit against the best staff in the AL.......
