That's a pretty bold statement.
A. Jones has never hit more than 36 home runs.
B. Giles only fell 6 rbi's short of 100 last year and that was his 1st full year back from a major injury. He's come the closest of anyone (of these 3) to hitting 40. I'm not sure that 1 year is long enough to say that Petco is an impossible field for a lefty power hitter to be successful in. Giles had more rbi's than Jones last year, and only 6 less jacks.
C. Look at Preston's '03 #'s. He's more than capable of hitting over 100 rbi's and if he's healthy he could flirt with 40hrs.
Jones may be the most likely
to hit 40, but it's not out of the question that one of these other guys could do it. Especially Preston, if he's healthy.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
