I don't think Grounded Polo was saying Chase doesn't have any pop in his bat. He is saying Chase doesn't have a chance at 35 HR, using Gonzalez as a guide.
Assume Gonzalez has more pop than Chase (reasonable assumption). Now look at Petco (where home runs go to die) making it unlikely for Gonzalez to get 35 HR. Therefore Chase doesn't have any chance to get 35 either.
I pretty much agree. I have Headley on my team, expect him to come up and do ok. But playing half this games at Petco really lowers my expectations from him.
My hope: Headly gets called up during a road trip. Goes all Jay Bruce in his first week, I sell him high. Its a keeper league, but I'll sell Headley. I also have Bruce, and I'm NOT selling him high.
