At least Barmes has Coors behind him and a hot start to boot. I wouldn't say he's gonna win a Batting Title, but I don't think it's wrong for someone to suggest him.
I would bet on Abreu or Helton for the batting title this year. Abreu seems to have gotten better, despite being great anyways, over the past two seasons. I wouldn't be shocked if his numbers this year are even better than last years. Too bad I doubted him enough pre-season not to grab him
Abreu only put up batting title level average in his second full season, 6 years ago. Anything in particular that makes you think he will do it again?
Just his motivation level. Apparently, he never worked out much or put much work towards improving his game prior to last season. Then, all of a sudden, he got into working out. This off-season, he worked out even harder, based on the solid results he got. He set some lofty goals for this season, and I ain't doubting him.
Perhaps the batting title is a little above his level, considering he does K a bunch, but I didn't want to sound like a broken tape recorder by suggesting the obvious Helton and Pujols ones. I figured I'd just replace Pujols with Abreu, although Pujols is more likely., Get it
