Sabathia back in the AL, threw a ton of pitches last year, and is HUGE...scares me. Holliday hitting in the AL, home field is NOT coors, and last year on the road wasnt that great. and then there is morneau...mr.consistant. what you guys think?
He actually didn't struggle all that much on the road...
Here is something I wrote in another post:
Holliday - Trade from Col to a park that slightly favors pitchers diminishes his value a bit. Still he hit .308/.405/.486 on the road last year with 10 of his 25HR coming on the road. What I am more concerned about is his drop in power from 36 in 2007 to only 25 in 2008. He saved his value by swiping 28 bags, but I just don't seem him outproducing the guys I ranked ahead of him. If he can hit .300 30HR and 20SB, then yes he will be a 1st rnd pick for sure. I think that he will be more .300 25HR 20SB which is close to what Corey Hart is projected for. Even if you chalk up 2008 power output as a fluke, the return of his power stroke will be countered a bit by him moving to a less hitter friendly park.
