I will be impressed to as Tiger Stadium is a more difficult park then Brewers Stadium is.

I like Votto. Adrian is a close second and could easily have the better year, I just think Votto is a little more steady.

Votto

AGon

Fielder

In that order. I think the new home field may suppress some of Fielder's power. Interesting to note that 9-10 of his homeruns in last year would not have left the park in Detroit.

Of course, I'd any of the three of them before moving on to Tex or Konerko.

its actually 7, 31 of his 38 homeruns would have left tigers stadium. dont also forget he plays more games at yankee stadium and fenway where lefties can do real damage. i see him topping 40 this year

Okay. Seven. Still don't think that playing in NYC and Boston makes him hit more than he did before, especially since I think he faces better pitching in the AL. Fangraphs has a good breakdown of the numbers for anyone interested:

Wouldn't be surprised if he hits 40, but more likely to expect 35-38 in my opinion.

Votto/Agon

Fielder

Not that Prince is a huge drop off, but he's a tier down. I like Votto a little more than Agon but it wouldn't shock me to see Agon put up vintage numbers this year either, so you can't really go wrong.
