Except that Adrian is very good with the leather.

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.

i think this projection is spot on.

he's a good avg hitter, petco will limit him to below 35 hrs, and while batting cleanup 110 rbis is very reasonable.

Another monster night for this guy...I think he might be one of the more underated players by years end. I think he's going to have a huge year.

im on that bandwagon...I drafted him as my starting 1B late (Round 18 in a 12 teamer)...I was expecting 30/100 .300 and its looking like its gonna happen...

That's just it though...everyone is projecting 28-30 homeruns and 100 rbi's. I don't see any reason why he can't have upper 30's for hr, and over 115 rbi's.
