He's hitting in a good spot in a good lineup. He doesn't need to smack very many HRs in order to put up good value. The RBI will be there if he can maintain a solid average.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

Agreed, I'd be happy with 20 HRs. If he hits .280 with 20 HRs, he'll push 100 RBI.

20 HR would be an excellent season for Freese. If he surpasses 15 he's doing alright, and that's having 2 already.

I own him in a keeper league I took a team over in. I was trying to deal him over the past 2 months to no avail. The hot start could be just what the doctor ordered! ;-D

Freese looks legit. The Cardinals as a whole look legit. Second time this young season they've hit 3 HRs in one inning.

They look hot, not legit because of the HR. That is not going to be a huge HR team (nor a bad one mind you). What is really legit about them is that top to bottom it is an extremely strong OBP team that doesn't give away a ton of outs and that just wears down a pitching staff. The power won't keep up for the Cardinals but they will still be a very good offense.

I disagree. Berkman, Holliday, Beltran all could push 30 HRs if healthy. Holliday and Berkman have done it recently and Beltran has that kind of power, he's just not often able to stay healthy. I know 20 HRs would be a spike for Freese, but I see it happening. It is a lineup full of disciplined hitters and they're going to get pitches to hit if everybody stays healthy.

Does Craig fit in there anywhere? So crazy that a 3/4 hitter from the World Series winner probably can't crack the lineup when he gets back.

Between Jay in CF and Descalso at 2B, and Berkman and Holliday needing their more than regular days off, I think he'll get his AB.
