So I'm sitting here watching the Reds, and A-Gon just hit another one out. Obviously, I'd love to see this continue, but a quick scan of his statistical history suggests that he is a streaky hitter who sits at around .300 OBP at the end of the day. He has shown a bit of pop in the past, and my guess is that GABP is a good fit for him and might accentuate his power a little. So here are a few questions for all of you:
Do we have any reason to believe this could be Alex's career year?
If so, what has changed to make him better?
If not, do you expect him to regress back to his career norms?
There's no question his D is already making him a valuable player. I'm just curious whether people think his O could be for real. I'm skeptical, but hope springs eternal.
