Of course you throw in his monster year when he was 30, which I didn't include. His numbers have still nosedived after that peak year. If Fielder performs at Ortiz' level at 32, it's one of the worst contracts in baseball.

Has Ortiz really hit 535 home runs?

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
