....nothing more needs to be said!
actually, i think there's quite a bit to be said. here's a guy that, beginning in 2003, just fell out of the top-tier outfielders. this hot streak has effectively earned him a starting spot in a loaded line-up and on a big stage.
is this an exceptionally motivational context for him? i would just think we'd be a little more geeked about this type of production from mixed-league waiver fodder.
Even if he is in a loaded line-up, he is hitting 7th in that loaded line-up. His power is a shell of what it was in 2003/2004 (when he had already fallen off). Honestly, if he gets 550 AB's, maybe he'll get 20hr 75 rbi, hit .280...... is that enough to warrant a roster spot in a 12 team mixed-league?
