That's my concern. I don't think he'll fall off the face of the earth, but in the minor leagues his career was something like one homer every 40-60 at-bats. This sudden power surge doesn't seem like something that's likely to continue at this pace.
I've got the other owner thinking of throwing in Ryan Doumit, which may (for me), put it over the edge. Hanley is a stud, and for that reason I've obviously been chasing him. But I'd been having a hard time justifying giving up both of those guys for him. I might now be leaning toward pulling the trigger.
