Really? You wouldn't say that... Sizemore's "power/speed potential is ridiculous?" Perhaps, and almost certainly, vastly more ridiculous than Braun?
Sizemore in the past four years: HR: 22, 28, 24, 33 SB: 22, 22, 33, 38
Braun in the past two years: HR: 34, 37 SB: 15, 14
Add 'em up and you get: Sizemore: 44, 50, 57, 71 Braun: 49, 51
Sorry, but Sizemore seems to take the cake in terms of power/speed...
In regards to the original question: MCab, then Sizemore/Braun depending upon your preference (I'll take Sizemore).
Wow congrats. You can add up what players did in the past.
We'll see. I have Braun pegged for 40 HR. I don't think Sizemore will break 30 again.
Wait... so you're ragging on me for looking at history? And then you're saying that you're right because you project something which doesn't even work out logically?
Think about, take a break from your ego and think. If Braun hits 40 HRs, and steals 15 SBs, that's 55 total. If Sizemore hits 28, and steals 35, that's 58 total.
And that's given your "pegged" projections (most have Sizemore surpassing 30 HRs)... you're still wrong... Sizemore is the obvious speed/power combo choice here. Braun is a beast, and deserves serious consideration, but you're blatantly ignoring simple facts with your claims.

Ya I simply don't believe Sizemore will hit 30 HR again and I always lean towards players who hit more HR since speed tends to fluctuate. I like both but I just think that Braun will put up ridiculous numbers this year.
