I'd REALLY like to see some evidence that power spikes in the early 30s.tomdoyle3 wrote:I choose not to address Yanks04's ignorant post.
What is unusual about Helton is that his drop in power started when he was 30 years old. The thing is, you see a lot of players go through a power spike in their early thirties, not the other way around. I don't know what to make of it..

You can lose quite a bit of strength with 15-20 pounds. I think next year you could expect 30 HR's. He still MIGHT do it this year, but I wouldnt count on it.

What happened to all those people saying he would hit 340 with 25+ HRs because of his "Great" second half last season? Where oh where has the power gone? Possibly the same place Tex's and Michael Young's and Beltre's have.
