If he stays healthy he'll end up between 135 and 140 ops which is still great but nothing like what he used to put up.

Alot of people seem to think he's not 33 either but somewhere between 35 and 36 which will make it even more difficult for him to stay healthy. I just don't think this lineup is as scary as it looks.
My point is, a player just doesn't fall flat on his face. Adam Dunn had one bad year, then followed that up with what he normally does. Pujols switched leagues and had a brutal 2 months to start the season. I'm willing to bet he has another Pujols type season this year.
