I think it's a toss up. However, I rememebr this time last year everyone was sayiong how Phelps was a sleeper and he woudl hit 30hrs. That didn't happen. I don't know what has changed this year.
Fullmer, only becasue of his position in the line up and the ballpark.
I'd say it's close, too, but give the nod to Phelps.
Phelps hit 20 HRs in 396 ABs last year, which is a better rate than what Fullmer has done in every year he's played except 2000. Phelps would have hit 30, if Toronto played him fulltime, but the idiots kept sitting him down against righthanders.
Phelps is on a much better offensive team. Toronto scored 5.5 runs per game last year and have a young line-up that is getting better.
Texas scored 5.1 runs per game last year and just traded away the best offensive player they have. Fullmer may be hitting behind Soriano, who will clean up some of Fullmer's potential RBIs, when he isn't distracting him by stealing bases.
