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.
