I'll go with 32, which is certainly still good. Fun guy to watch.

.265 AVG, 32 HR, 91 RBI, 76 R, 5 SB

What's amazing is that on his 8 HR he's gotten only 10 RBI. His K rate is lower than last year and his BB rate is higher. That said, he's still barely 22. I'd expect him to be streaky this year and probably next as well.

if only he could hit against Milwaukee pitching 162 games a year, he would probably hit 148 homers

Well I just traded David Ortiz for him so I hope I end up loving him too.

If Ortiz makes a fool of me I'll be hating him and the RedSox more than ever before.

I like him too, I just have to make some room to get him into my line up. Right now I'm rolling w/ Soriano, Cruz and J. Upton (who is on a crazy hot streak). I then have Prince @ my UTIL spot w/ Pujols @ 1B.

You think you love him, but are you willing to have a uterus implanted in your body so that you can bear his child?

If not, please rename this thread appropriately. :-b

you're right.. definetely more of a man crush..

I don't love him unconditionally. if he starts sucking balls, I could get over him pretty quickly..

sorry, that was a little bit overly agressive.. :-/
