Are you kidding me? first off Wells hit 33 homers last year so 42 would only be an increase of 9. He tailed off the power a little bit last year towards the end which is why he didn't hit 40 last year. But your projection of 20 homers and 95 RBIs is ridiculous. Are you in a league with some of these guys and trying to drive his value down? BTW, Wells lost the weight because he wanted to be in better shape so that he wouldn't have the late season power shortage. He didn't lose 20 pounds of muscle, he just toned himself to the point where he doesn't have any body fat. Hinske did the same thing. And I agree, if Hinske can steal 10 then Wells can steal 10 in Toronto. And he hit 23 homers and 100 RBIs his rookie year. Why would you be projecting him finishing lower than those totals? What a joke!!
My projection: .315, 115, 40, 130, 10. Write it down!!
