That's the key - you're calling people homer's for calling him average based on 1 year of career highs in HR's RBI's and OPS. IF someone said Drew Stubbs would hit 22 HRs, have 77 RBI's and OPS 770+, you'd probably call them a homer as well. Willingham is 33 and has also now played for 4 teams in the past 5 years.
