This has probably been posted 100 times but how about once more... Obviously overbay has been lighting it up. But once he comes back to reality what are some stats that I can expect out of him the rest of the year?

As an Overbay owner, i'm not foolish enough to think he'll do this all year but i think his stats at season's end could look like this:

.310-18-100 ....only question is if he can hit the 18 HR but he hits a ton of doubles and most are laser-beams. A little more lift in some of the more hitter-friendly parks and i could see him approaching 20 HR, though 20 would be his ceiling.

one more thing...i LOVE the avatar!!!!

I would agree. .310, 15-20 HR, 100-110 RBI is what I'd expect. The HR's are high but playing every day in Miller Park is a gap hitters dream and he also gets to play in Col and Cin so a good number of doubles will turn into HR's for him.

BAAAH~!!! Lyle's young & a stud. He can get it up faster than a skirt on prom nite. Lyle is the sort of unproven guy you gamble on.

Lyle looks pretty damn good. You don't watch him play and say, " That was lucky ... he'll stink from now on." You say, "&^%$#@! Wow!"

He's a player, good attitu8de, roll yer dice, that's how you win.

why wouldn't you expect him to keep this up. Look at his minor league stats.........freaking nuts. So he struggled last year not playing every day. The guy has it. So where do the Brewers send him when Prince Fielder is ready??

Yes I am sure he might cool a bit but who doesn't. I agree he has great minor league numbers, and showing he can produce in the majors. No reason why he cannot keep this up

tied for the league lead in RBIs. This man is the Nut high. Hes always hitting with men on base and smacking doubles into the gap. And Pods is always on base ahead of him too.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I picked him up last week expecting to ride his hot streak and then dump him for someone else when he cools down. But now I'm not sure that he'll cool down all that much. On the Braves broadcast last night, Don Sutton had a lot of very positive things to say about him.

As for his power, I'm not sure more than 20 HRs is likely, but the double he hit last night was only about 2 feet from going out. Swecond to Rolen in RBIs. That should continue with Podsednik and Jenkins in front of him B-)

.320 20HRs 90 RBIs :-°
