    It is a sad state when declining players just don’t realize how much they are declining and try to play at the same intensity as when they were younger. this can only lead to injuries. I think AP is headed for the disabled list  before the end of May.

    bullgtor: I don’t think it’s that. I’d lean toward 2 things: 1) He’s a big guy and a power hitter. The wear and tear can cause a lot of problems when you move into your 30’s. 2) And this is a bigger stretch, but I’ve heard plenty of people question his age. Who knows, it wouldn’t be the first time someone from the Dominican lied about his age. He’ll still finish with around 30 HR’s, 100 RBI and a .300 average because he’s still that good.
