Murphy's power in the minors was always disappointing after being a 1st rounder, maybe hes finally added a little more to get him over the top.
I think the double power is very legit. HR wise, 15 HR is probably more typical... but given that he a lefty whose power is to right center and he plays in arlington... the ballpark could push him to 20. I think I said 18-20 earlier and id still go with that for this year. lots of doubles.

Im not sure the last time Blalock had a stretch like that. When Hank does return though, nothing wrong with...
I dont really disagree at all, but i have little doubt the rangers will use blalock there just because its really his spot to lose, murphy got it when blalock got injured and hes been around the rangers so long.
hes supposedly coming back sometime next week.
also, the rangers face lee/sabathia/kazmir the next three days. nightmare matchups for murph.
