What? Doug, you're missing the point unless you are just being smart. I know you are educated on who he is, but your comment makes no sense. He is the ultimate point your finger at him candidate. If someone like Brian McCann hit 50 HR's and someone called him out for possible juice, then I could see you saying "no one is safe these days."
Prior to this year:
07-10 = 1372 AB's with 20 HR; 69 AB per HR
2011 = 596 AB's with 27 HR; 22 AB per HR
Even in the minor leagues he had 10 HR in 1049 AB's; 105 AB per HR
This guy had 30 power at best! Now he's dropping serious bombs, and hitting them very far.
Certainly not saying he's on anything, but if they do HGH testing in the bigs next year and he gets popped, I wouldn't be surprised one single bit. There are a lot more players out there doing stuff that people just don't expect.
