Who exactly is he driving in?
I'm not a believer in his power yet. He has never shown any before until last year, so I think it will regress a bit down to 20 or under.
I agree. The article says, "He actually makes excellent contact for a power hitter." The only problem with that statement is that he's not really a power hitter, at least not in my opinion. Like hybrid said, he hasn't really shown this kind of power at any level prior to 2005. I think his average will get better, but I would be pretty surprised with 20 or more home runs.
