Since when is a .308 OBP a guy who 'gets on base'?
I predict a 15-18HR, 80-90RBI, .250 - 270 AVG. It's not horrible for a rookie, on whom too much was expected. And please, we saw him explode last year with the bat incident. No explosions!
His OBP has gone up every month this year as has his average. I will take someone with that power who gets on base 1/3 times he gets up
Really, I wouldn't. His power isn't particularly impressive either.
