After seeing Nick now through spring and last night. I would have to say in that park, and with the players around him, he is an easy 290-300 hitter this year with 25 HR and 100 RBI(+/-10). The right field line is 333 in Nattyville.
He is an OPS monster and is on a mission I feel. Think of him as the "other" Adam LaRoche with a better eye.
Does not turn 30 until the Sept. & as far as I am concerned, he is almost like a 4th year 27 year old. He has only had 1 full season in '06 and then in '07, the leg.
What do you think?
