Too inexperienced and too many K's to hit 40 at this point, IMO. Boy, fantasy owners can be a strangely optimistic group at times.
I can't see Thome going to the Braves, either.
to be fair, he does walk a decent amount too though, like thome, dunn, etc, and not like morneau, etc. that said, i think it's more likely that he WON'T hit 40 next season, though i wouldn't completely discount it.
