Travis Ishikawa's career slugging % of .445 over 119 major league ABs. So far this spring he has a slugging % of 2.200, breakout season anyone?


He's currently the major league leader in HRs and one of his HRs was hit out of the stadium. :-L

Here are the guys that qualified in 08 for the over .200 theory

* Andre Ethier (.680 against .464 career)
* Carlos Guillen (.708 against .450 career)
* Brian Anderson (.638 against .353 career)
* Jorge Cantu (.739 against .450 career)
* Placido Polanco (.674 against .416 career)
* Curtis Granderson (.791 against .493 career)
* Chris Burke (.763 against .377 career)
* Mike Morse (.816 against .399 career)
* Ivan Rodriguez (.921 against .479 career)
* Ron Belliard (.784 against .412 career)

* Josh Hamilton (.972 against .554 career)
* Melvin Mora (.694 against .438 career)

Hamilton , Cantu and Mora are the only ones that panned out...

i dont know what stadium he plays at in ST, but most of the ST stadiums i've visited dont really have any OF seats, so pretty much every HR is out of the stadium...

Jonathan Sanchez looked good today. I'm a bit worried about him pitching in the WBC, but I'm still expecting good things from him this year.

3 IP, 3 hits, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 Ks

one of the hits (which drove in the lone run) was on a routine fly ball that defensive whiz eugenio velez lost in the sun and would have ended the inning.

Victor Martinez hit 2 jacks, if he's fully healthy and hitting for power again he could be great value where he's being drafted.

Yeah but Dirty Sanchez will put up a stinker in his next start.
