He's done this before, hasn't he?
Not in AAA ball. He stunk last year. He had a good year in A, High-A, and Double-A.
In '05 in Potomac he was our Minor League hitter of the year and hit .290 with 22 HR and 90 RBIs.
In '06 in Harrisburg he hit .271 with 20 HR and 80 RBIs.
Last year after being demoted to AAA he hit .246 with 11 HRs and 55 RBIs in 411 ABs.
It's only 44 ABs obviously but maybe he's finally learning how to hit at a higher level.
