"Even how he viewed himself as a hitter, I think a lot of baseball views him as a guy who would hit .250, 30 homers, strike out a lot," Anderson said. "He's a really good hitter. I told him, 'Dude, I can see you contending for a batting title one year,' and he said, 'Exactly, so do I.' So the fact that he's been hitting around .300 all year, I'm as happy about that as anything. But that goes hand in hand. His home runs and his average, same as mine did."
