He's also moving into those magical prime years, so you can't rule out a peak power season in the near future.
That's my point. I'm not expecting the average, or ops, to stay this high either. That said, I don't know what you mean by a 'peak power season' but 25 homers seems doable to me.
Also, I wasn't tossing out his mlb ab's. But, they would mean more to me for projections if those mlb ab's were done at a younger age.
