under. Maybe 30. Maybe. Probably more like 25-28.

Depends on how healthy he stays but I'd expect around 30.

The health is the main issue here. I'd say he hits 26-27 in severely limited at bats. In my mind, 35 is essentially out of the question, though. He's just so dinged up and worn down, and we're still in April.

The thing is though, he is always dinged up. Unless he breaks a bone he will play 140-150 games and get 450-500 AB. And as long as he plays he will produce. I know it is early but he is on a pace for 28 HR and has been pretty cold.

He will hit 27 HR's this season. 2 more than Shelton's 25.

I would say under 35 (most likely high-20s) but its very dependant on how healthy he can stay. He's got 4 already after missing some games (and not hitting particularly well anyway) and he's got great lineup protection. He did hit 40 only two years ago. A repeat of 40 is most likely out of reach, but if he can avoid missing too many games he could hit 30 to 35 with 275 BA or so.
