    Let's face it, AGon is so gifted that he could simply change his approach, lower his BA and OBP and OPS, and hit more homers and strke out more if he wanted to. It's about RBI's, hitting with runners on base, and overall slugging, for middle of the order profiles.

    Manny wasn't a 40HR every season guy. He was about a 30HR a season guy who had the advantgage of the short porch for RH hitters.


    Absurd.  AGon can't carry the jock of Manny or Ortiz when it comes to being a complete slugger.  Manny and Ortiz were/are able to hit home runs and maintain high BA, OBP and OPS.

    As for the Monster benefitting Manny, you must know that his career SLG in Yankee Stadium is .605, which is higher than his .582 in Fenway.

    AGon's diminished HR power is most likely a result of his shoulder injury.  Certainly not by choice. 



    I was a critic of Gonzalez's lack of power when he was with the Sox. His career numbers are not those of an elite slugger. I also pointed out the risk of giving him a big contract when he was just coming off a shoulder injury. A certain board expert claimed that the doctors had examined him and there should be no issues from the bad shoulder. Like you, i think it has affected his hitting. In the end, I don't think he was a good enough fit in Boston. He is a very talented hitter and fielder, but I think it was best for all that he and the team parted ways.
