That's real high. 24 hrs in Safeco? His MLE were along the lines of .275/15/75. Of course he will slump again. So will every other hitter at some point.


Yeah, I thought they were a bit nuts as well with that projection. The funnier part is that they only have him pegged for 480'ish ab's to hit those 24 home runs.

The Japan League is a notorious hitters league with small ballparks, so you have to be careful when you look at those stats. Just look at Kaz Matsui (as well as Ichiro, although he is kind of a freak, and Hideki), and you'll see.


However, they also play a 30 game shorter schedule
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Safeco scares me as does the fact that his hot streak is coming during inter-league, against pitchers who may have not figured him out yet.
I need to decide if him or AJ Priez is the better option for the rest of the year.

I see his numbers tapering off toward the end of the year due to the facts that he has caught more games than any other catcher in baseball at this point and that he's accustomed to a shorter Japanese season.
Using a key to gouge expletives on another's vehicle is a sign of trust and friendship.

My thoughts exactly. I'm going to try to sell high with him right now.
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

I did the same thing when McCann came back from the DL.
