well i think those numbers seem reasonable except for the 20-30 sb's... really he's never been a base stealer like he is this year... i'd say at most 15 sb's which is insanely awesome anyways... but this could be an even bigger year than 06... he's sick

RBIs can fluctuate, so I would be conservative with that estimation, but he could very well hit over .300 with 40+ HRs. He's pretty sick. Wish I'd drafted him...

Seriously though, due to the hot start, you could reasonably expect a repeat of 2006 with a bump in runs (110ish) and SB (15 would be nice).

Cannedcorn...you sound like you are attracted to him :*) But Not to sound like a hater i really do hope he cools off. I didnt draft him and has been trying to trade for him but nobody is bitting and there reasonable trades. Fielder, braun, and cc (not all of course).

Berkman is on pace for a 55 HR year, but knowing he'll cool a bit not to the point where he's off form for the most part, I think a .310, 110 R 45 HR, 120 RBI year is possible. I don't see the stolen bases being a long-term trend, but it's been a nice bonus of late.

What, you mean for next week? :-?

Eh, I'm tempted to dial those digits back a little. But note that Berkman has been consistent in the past two years in maintaining average without huge fluctuation throughout the bulk of the season. In 2006 he was .333 on May 1 and ended .315 on October 1. In 2007, .256 on May 1 and ended at .278. The dude sets a pace and keeps it.

So if he's at .391 now, why not .330 by season's end? What the fart, why not .350? .360? This could be the career year, enjoy. :*)
