Lets map this out:

Hernandez + Coors= Exagerated Numbers

Aurilia + Hitting in front of Bonds = Exagerated Numbers

Take your pick ;-D

I am stumped by JWHands answer. His point was that Miller Park bloated his numbers. I wonder if he consider that the most prolific hitting park of all time. I think everyone else considers Coors Field that park. Hernandez is going to do quite well in CO. The biggest difference in CO is the ball doesn't break. Jose's handicap is the curveball. Fastball he hits very much. Curveball, bats are afraid. Given that, I think he puts up a BIG year at home. 30-35 HRs, and 100 RBIs is the guess. Castilla had less talent than this man.

As for Aurillia, well, you gotta love the pitches he will see. However, Pac Bell is a big problem for his power numbers. The guy is just not a big power guy. He is a guy who hits the gap. If it lifts, it could be gone. That is a double in Pac Bell. He has only had one superb year, and I think he is beyond the age he should put up a career year.

Easy choice.
You don't need a quadraphonic Blaupunkt, what you need is a curveball!....
