I'd take away a few runs and HRs from your prediction - add some avg and more SBs:

.328
18 hr
90 rbi
80 run
24 sb

To bat only .300 he'd have to be a .280 hitter the rest of the way. I've watched him a good amount - very good contact guy. I think he increases power towards 30 hr (in a full season next year) and his average settles a bit. Maybe the numbers of a young Sizemore...

.417 BABIP. In a redraft league, this guy is a perfect sell high candidate, if your leaguemates are predicting final lines like some that I have seen in this thread. :-°

Agreed. I have him for $1 in my keeper league, but I would definitely take offers on him in a redraft. To continue at this pace, he would end with one of the best rookie seasons in years.

I got him at pick 1.9 in our minor league draft this year. My team is flat-out stacked (Russell Martin, Pujols, Utley, Youkilis, Reyes, Vernon Wells, Jason Bay, Andruw Jones, Dave Roberts and Julio Lugo in a 14 team league...and that's just the offense :b ) and we keep 6 players each year. I'm gonna have to deal somebody to make room for Pence. He's just amazing and watching him play is even more impressive than watching the stat-line. He just looks like he knows what he's doing up there. It's not lucky hits dropping him...he's taking outside pitches to right field, going down and getting the nasty sliders, fighting off the pitches in on his hands and flaring them into centerfield. He's just flat-out raking.

Watching him play though I wouldn't discount a higher than normal BABIP. He's fairly fast so he'll beat out the odd infield hit and he makes SOLID linedrive contact to all fields. I'd say a conservative estimate on this kid is somewhere in the .325 range and I wouldn't be surprised at all if he settles in to the .335-.340 range if he develops the way it looks like he could.

Obviously that still makes him a good sell-high at .417 but don't take too little for him.
