I don't think he'll smack 30 HR's either. He's a very good hitter, and he hits lefties better than righties!! 30 HR's at PETCO would be very impressive, but I don't think it'll happen. Has anyone hit 30 or more bombs in a season, (that played for San Diego), since they opened PETCO?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't PETCO only that detrimental to righties? I can't find the numbers at the moment but i seem to recall that PETCO's HR index or whatever it is for lefties was pretty close to the league average. If this is true, I think 30 is very reachable.
If someone wants to dig up the numbers that would be cool.
