Well, the guy completely reinvented his swing. Rebuilt from the ground up. I know his story is incredibly unlikely, but it's not totally inconceivable.

As far as the steroids, it's pretty tough to get away with that in the current MLB atmosphere. I mean he's a magnet for suspicion now. I have a hard time believing anyone (other than Manny, LOL) could be that stupid.

Also, it's not like he's suddenly hitting 500 foot HRs every day. He's just making consistent, solid contact.

You're right though, totally OT. Maybe we should go in the baseball thread.
