Does anyone else think that Derrek could hit
40 hr's in the friendly confines of Wrigley.

Plus his usual 15-20 sb's

It's a possibility. Wrigley gives about a 30-40% boost in HRs per game compared to Florida. Take Derrek's usual 30 and multiply by 1.35 and you get 40.

I would say 35 to 40 but not over.

I'd say high 30's but I don't see him getting more than 10-12 stolen bases. Dusty don't like to run.

Yeah, I see Lee's stolen base numbers dropping this year.

Well...you'de have to take his road homers and leave them about the same...so maybe 33-35 homers and only 10 steals I think...


Some Info:

Lee hit 11 homers in 77 games at home last year and
20 homers in 78 games away.

I think he's got a legit shot at 40+
