        Before 2007, Ordonez's best OBP in a season was .382.

          he's going to have Miggy either above or below him in the same lineup from last year

            I'm expecting another MVP type season

            Maybe not as good as last year's "career year", but with Cabrera and a healthy Sheffield hitting behind him, who knows?

            93 Runs, 191 hits, 41 2B, 26 HR, 119 Rbi, .331/.380/.575

            While those numbers probably won't be enough for an MVP award, they'll certainly be enough for another All Star appearance, and another step closer to the Hall of Fame.

              Exactly. Do you think teams are going to intentionally walk Maggs a lot?

                they will be walking him more because his pitch selection will go down

                  It took Maggs an extended time to get fully healthy. Be wary of his Detroit 2006 stats - his late season 2005 stats. He never trusted that damaged knee until 2007.

                  Also look at how he learned to hit within Comerica Park in 2007. His swing remains a masterpiece.

                  Lastly, with Miggy and Sheff surrounding Maggs, Ordonez will see better pitches.

                    I don't deny any of that. And it is certainly obtainable for Ordonez to climb over .400 OBP again this year. These are just predictions.

                    The reason I chose to predict him with less then a .400 OBP though, is when you look at the entire career of Ordonez, you see him consistently around a .380 OBP, when healthy, and about a .315 BABIP. Last year, a career year, he posted a .380 BABIP, which direclty related to his OBP. He also walked a few more times last year due to teams pitching around him.

                    I think this year he comes back down a bit, maybe a better season than most considering the lineup, but that's the reasoning behind my predict.

                        Such pessimistic predictions? Tsk tsk tsk.

                            I don't like to gloat, but I'll take this one.........

                            He sat out 14 games due to a strained oblique, and his power was down, but the BA and OBP were almost spot on.

                            Now, where's my cookie?
