I don't think anyone will replicate Fielder's performance from out of nowhere. Pena is really the type of guy you want. Someone who really breaks out in the power department. So you have to look for a guy who has shown plenty of power in his MiLB days.
I guess someone like Mark Reynolds? Wily Mo, Burrell, Kouzmanoff, Hawpe also have a lot of power. Surprisingly, this list has Weeks hitting some of the longest HRs in 2007. Looking more and more like the sleeper pick of the year:
If Chris Young and Mark Reynolds could both bust out. If Young can hit for better average his numbers should improve, which would make him threaten 45-50 HRs. Reynolds is a nice sleeper with lots of power. If both improve they can feed off of eachother and really show improvement.
