You have to be realistic and expect adjustment.
While I think there were several things that toyed with Gordon last year, lets also remember that he didn't have any at bats above AA in 2006, which could have played into his adjustment as well. While I think .310/30 is pretty crazy to throw out for JB, I don't think .275/20-25 is far from reality if he starts from day 1.
