Still hitting the long ball, I think 40 HRs for the season is a pretty good bet at this point.

What a great surprise to my fantasy team :-D

It seems like he's a legit option to keep this type of pace (maybe not 40HR every year, but 30+) in the years...decent K/BB ratio for a power hitter.

Thoughts on his chances to repeat in '09?

In addition to his nice K/BB for a young player he has been very consistent. He has hit 7,7,5,9,6 (august) home runs in the months since starting the season. His lowest BA posted was .266 for a month, with .275 another month and no other months under .290. This consistency means there is little chance of this being a fluke. Further, his .285 BABIP and 21.3% HR/FB do not give great cause for alarm due to luck or unsustainable performance. This is why he's a great keeper prospect especially if he is undervalued coming into next season.

I won't bet on him to hit 40 HRs again next season, but I think 30 HR is reasonable.

EDIT: And yes, I think I did just declare that I considered him a lock for 40 HR this season... :-L

Definately for real. K/BB very promising for Quentin.

Not good... looks like he is done for the season. I could have really used him in the playoffs... :,-(

Ugh. How many difference makers have gone down this year... after the trade deadline? :-t There's nothing you can even do about it except pick up WW crap.

Ugh - that really hurts as I have him in both of my money leagues: my roto league where I'm barely hanging onto first place and an ALH2H where I'm heading to the semi-finals next week. Sigh... :-o
