I think its more realistic that kinsler will steal 40 bases in a season in his career than ever hit 30 hrs.

I think the 20 HRs is going to be pretty typical, and with good or bad seasons be somwhere between 18-25. stealing though ive always wondered why he didnt steal more. hopefully this early season surge is a sign of things to come. hes not a real speedburner but hes fast, and hes a smart baserunner. and i swear in his rookie year he was safe on 3 of his 4 caught stealings.. i was mad about it at the time.

Kinslers power has been disappointing so far, but on the whole as an average not too hot start i think youve got to be happy with the avg/obp/runs/steals.

Ender wrote:20 HR power generally means long stretches wtihout many HR followed by short stretches of many HR. Those types generally have a 6 or 7 HR month, a few 3-4 HR months and a couple 1-2 HR months.


Agreed. Good analysis.

I'll easily take this over last year, where he came screaming out of the box, and then hibernated for an extended period. Solid contributions throughout the year, with a few brief flurries of power, is good enough for me.
