The RBIs are down, but I think there's a lot of reasons for that, not the least of which is that pitchers would much rather face Wiggy than Nick (agree with allstar1579). His #s against RHP are a little surprising and disappointing, but I'm hoping it's just a one year thing. As for the power, I just don't think he'll ever be the 30HR guy people dream he can/should be. I think the most apt description of Nick's potential is the one that Jim Palmer uses in calling him a potential George Brett. Brett hit over 25 HRs only once, but hit .305 lifetime, logged a lot of XBHs, played very good D, won and MVP (nearly two) and anchored the middle of the lineup for years as the face of the franchise. And he's in the Hall of Fame. I'll take that.
