Gonzo numbers for Gonzo?

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Buster Olney of ESPN is not a man prone to hyperbole. He’s from Vermont, after all.

That said, this is what he wrote today about Adrian Gonzalez:

Gonzalez has been an All-Star caliber player for awhile, but this may well be the year where he puts up crazy, ridiculous numbers. If he finishes the year at .320/48/145, it shouldn’t be a surprise.

Yes, a .320 batting average, 48 home runs and 145 RBIs. Holy cats. If that happens, they’ll be changing Lansdowne St. to A-Gone Way.
