Raul Ibanez

Is this year his year of age-related decline in production? Strange, because if you look at him he had a career year last year w/ 30+ and 120 ribbies. Never thought he'd reach that again, but the 25/100 plateau was within reach in my mind.

Anyone seen him or heard anything in particular? His K rates are not unreasonable, so I don't see something that indicates his skills have really declined.

He got over 620 ab's last year. He's got lost of AB's to make up some ground.

Even at this pace he's at minimum on pace for 90 rbi's
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I drafted him with the same numbers in mind (25/100). Stick with him, he appears to be picking it up.

Eric Karabell of told me so:
Raul Ibanez is owned in barely half of ESPN's leagues. He's about to get hot.

i think 20hr 90rbi is what he'll finish with.

he always has a pretty consistent line. the only difference was that last year, he freaked and hit way more homeruns than he is acustomed to. A bunch of those homeruns came with runners on base.

I think his power last year was a fluke and he'll go back to hitting 20hr.
