However, others believe that it was 2006, when he slugged 32 home runs, hit for a .303 average and knocked in 106 runs.

Scouting Report

He is a great defender (for now, at least)... Has very good power... Average patience... Good contact hitter, but not the best bat-control artist... Average command of the strike zone... Speed is average-to-mediocre... Seems to alternate great seasons with average ones.

From your favorite center fielder, Vernon Wells." to fans who had been heckling him during the game. This was an obvious joke, and the fans loved it.
