Does Konerko still have 40 HR power?

Postby Dark Knight » Sun Apr 13, 2008 4:38 pm

Or will he be more of a 30-35 HR guy from now on like he was last season?

No, I don't see him hitting 40 again. He did it twice right in his prime, but it's been 2 years since. I don't think 30+ is even guaranteed, but 30+ HRs with better Rs/RBIs than last year is a reasonable expectation IMO.

8-o

You mean that MLB players are using steriods? I thought they got so big by drinking protien shakes, and getting plenty of sleep? I'm confused?

Konerko wasn't on steroids insofar that has never been a smidge of a mention about him in any venue.


He'll hit 35 - 40 this year.

I think he'll hit in the low to mid 30's for HR's this year. I'd guess 34. ;-D

Probably another year of low average with 30+ HRs, but 40 is a little optimistic. He plays in a hell of a hitters park too, so that helps.

I've got him down for 30 but there is an outside chance he could hit 40.
