I doubt it. Probably more like 20-25.

I depends how much playing time he gets. I think he'll be splitting time every so often so Im guessing .260 with 15-20 HR.

If he starts everyday then he could hit 25-30. Another thing is that he could easily bring his batting average back up resulting in close to or over .300.

so you think he can hit between 15 and 30 hr's and bat somewhere between .260 and over .300.

The large varience in home run projections is because of the question of playing time. He should get the majority of it but it does remain uncertain on how much Carl Everett will take from him since they will start Podsednik, Rowand and Dye almost everyday.

The more I look at it the more it seems like his batting average will be closer to .300 than .260. His plate discipline was as good as ever the last few years but his batting average was down despite a very high power index, which suggests the batting average was brought down just by bad luck.

we use walks and OPS in my league so it doesn't really matter what his average is, as long as he maintains his insane walks #s and .900+ OPS.

i do worry about him splitting time too much though.

Isn't that accurate enough for you ;-7

Roto-times predicts 27 dingers with a .263 avg, RotoChamps say .260 with 30HR.

I think his BA will be a little higher (.275?), and he is easily capable of hitting 20+ out of the park. One things for sure, if your league counts OPS, OBP or even Walks, this guy should not be on the wire......
