Headley averaged 22 HR per 162 in the minors, why are people predicting 25+ HR in Petco of all places?

silly. im sure you wouldnt say this about adrian gonzalez would you? im not comparing them to him, but you wouldnt write off him just because of his team or park alone.


ya, thats the thing, you really can't compare the two. a crappy team and a huge stadium is enough reason for me to lay off a power prospect with less than 300 AAA ABs and poor contact skills.

i wouldnt really call him a "power prospect". the kid can get on base and hit at a high clip. the power numbers are a bonus.

if he put up a .290 15 hr 70 rbi 70 run line with a .900 ops, i think he'd be owned in most all leagues. you can get this guy for next to nothing. im not saying reach and get him in the 12th round or anything, but just someone to keep an eye on.

i honestly tend to knock adrian down a few pegs on my sheet because of those factors.
i honestly do not think he will repeat last year.

.290 seems like a reach considering how much he strikes out. he also hit .230/.307/.358 at petco last year, though 150 ABs is a very small sample size.

This made me laugh. I'm not saying he'll hit 25+ but you make it sound like since he didn't do it in the minors its not possible to do it in the bigs. Just about every hitter, that is fantasy worthy, out there has hit more homers in the bigs than they did in the minors.

Amen. This is a guy who hit 43 doubles combined AAA and ML last season. I can see him batting .290 even with all the strikeouts, and 25 HR is not out of the question, though it is the upside and not the expectation.

He's improved every season for the last four. I obviously can't say for certain that he will improve upon last year, but it's at least possible IMO.

I see him sleeping on the waiver wire of most leagues, where all of the other 10-15HR/ low BA. guys are.
