I think Andruw Jones will do better than is expected hitting cleanup this year. 35-40 HRs. Hidalgo is a good bet, Burrell could return to form, Griffey always could, LGon could do well if he's healthy. P-dub has potential in the thin mountain air if the knee holds up.

Definitely. I completely agree.

Go for it, I'm already on record in a Cafe league comparing Dye to 2004 Dunn. There is always the health issue to worry about, but since this one was qualified with 150+ GP a 40 HR season is definitely possible.

Craig Wilson. I am expecting at least 30 HRs from him. His numbers will look closer to his first half than his second half.

You A-Town Homers are funny, no way Jones hits 40 HR, I don't care where he hits, he is the laziest player on the planet.

I don't think Holliday's really a power hitter. He'll hit for average and pop in 25 homers max...prob closer to 20.

Anyway, basically anybody off the team I just drafted:
P. Wilson
Hidalgo
Burrell
Floyd
Dye

And then Dallas McPherson, Glaus is going pretty late...Pena's a good one, too.

Jenkins will break 30 HR this year if healthy, now that he has a right handed bat behind him. He's generally more of a 270-280 hitter so he won't wreck your average(.279 lifetime average).

Burrell usually is available late. I also agree that Dye will likely be around and do well in that stadium.
