I like that he's showing consistent opposite field power.

I think he could get into the mid-30s, although I do have concerns about pitchers beginning to pitch around him.

is that 70 runs??? just the fact that he hits in the middle of the order pretty much garuntees him more than that. If you wanted to low ball him like that you could have at least gone 85...

Wow! Talk of 40 HRs from a guy who hit just 25 a year ago and plays half his games in PetCo :-?

30-35 is where he should be. He has legit power and more of his line drive doubles will carry this season. I like him quite a bit in H2H because he should stay pretty consistent throughout the season.

Don't sell this guy short, you dont have to hit 40 to be a nice fantasy 1b. He should be in for plenty of extra base hits with a nice average. That usually leads to good run and rbi production as well. NL West pitching doesn't exactly scare me either.

Of course if the right offer comes along, you consider letting him go, but he isn't a sell high guy because he will be top 10 at 1b this year.

Cameron and Greene hitting behind you is not a good thing. I think 70 runs is low, but think he'll end up at 80-85 runs.

Don't look now, but Khalil Greene leads the NL in extra base hits. Also, he drove in Adrian twice last night. I'm not saying it'll keep up, just that it's a nice sign. B-)

Not every player improves his statistics every season. Don't get me wrong, I think he's a good hitter, but to me he's got Sean Casey written all over him.

Sean Casey hit 25 in 1999 and a lot of people expected him to hit 30 the next year and in the future. That didn't exactly pan out.
