if you consider .268 a baseline after he batted .289 .290 .277 in the three years prior. He'll bring it back up to the .275-.280 level. With sizemore you have close to a 30-40 season.
Couple responses to my post, so I went with this one. You're right, Grady's avg. may go up, and probably will, but I think Braun's will increase to a higher degree. Last year he had an awful September (.208), as he progresses I don't think his slumps will be quite so low (I couldn't remember if he was dealing with an injury at this time as well).
I'm by no means saying Grady is a bad pick, just I have Braun a bit higher. My projection on Braun is .290 - .300 41 105 120 15. Grady will have more Rs and SBs, higher HRs AVG and RBIs for Braun.
