The large varience in home run projections is because of the question of playing time. He should get the majority of it but it does remain uncertain on how much Carl Everett will take from him since they will start Podsednik, Rowand and Dye almost everyday.
The more I look at it the more it seems like his batting average will be closer to .300 than .260. His plate discipline was as good as ever the last few years but his batting average was down despite a very high power index, which suggests the batting average was brought down just by bad luck.

Isn't that accurate enough for you
Roto-times predicts 27 dingers with a .263 avg, RotoChamps say .260 with 30HR.
I think his BA will be a little higher (.275?), and he is easily capable of hitting 20+ out of the park. One things for sure, if your league counts OPS, OBP or even Walks, this guy should not be on the wire......
