Now, with 1/2 the season almost in the books and fast approaching Vernon has to produce basically a 25 HR, 70 RBI's and a .300 ave from here on out just to even break even on his averages. Even though I hate to say it, I do not see this happening and see a very 15-18 HR, 65-72 RBI, .270 season which is far off his mark. He will have to catch absolute fire and not let down to put in his usual 30 HR, 100 RBI type season. Go Vernon
While that's true that he'd have to put up those numbers to provide the appropriate value to the team that drafted him all he has to do to provide value to the team that trades for him at this point is put up a prorated 28 hr, 98 rbi, .287 clip. And that's assuming that you pay full value for him.
