I see him more like what we had Mike Sweeney or a right handed Lyle Overbay..... .300+/ 20-25hr / 100rbi / 40+ doubles ....pretty good player but I'm not sure he'll dominate like he was expected too coming up. Pretty close to what I see in Pablo Sandoval as well.

home/road splits always elude my thought process when an overwhelming home park advantage isnt present. in other words, unless the home ballpark has tiny dimensions (citizens bank park, arlington, etc.) or is a known launching pad (colorado of seasons past, the new yankee stadium, etc.), i ussually consider those splits more "lucky" than anything and i dont ussually adjust my lineup because of this. i guess that thought process could get me some ugly #s when i start my home warrior on the road for a whole week and he stinks the place up but i just cant bring myself to any legitimate rationale not to start a hot bat whos leaving his home park for a road trip.... but the #s are so hard to deny
