I like Hosmer, but it remains to be seen if he can translate that hot second half to a full season. He had 19 HRs in over 500 ABs -- that's not great for the 1B position. Everyone I ranked ahead of him had at least 27 bombs, and the only guys that may slide under that level this year were all .300 hitters. Love the 11 SBs from Hosmer though. He should be good, but I have a feeling he'll be slightly overvalued in drafts with people drafting him expecting him to do too much (he's only 22, so it would shock no one to see a sophomore slump).
