Dodger stadium does not decrease HRs. It depresses every other offensive category, but not homers. So the power is not unexpected. Everything else is.

I fully expect
1. A big slump dropping his average to below .300
2. An injury that sidelines him for way too long.

I will admit I was one of those those that wrote Kent off this year but I stick by those initial thoughts as I believe he is playing way over his head at the moment. The last few years Houston his overall numbers were padded playing half his games in Houston, his road stats declined significantly on what he had done previously.

Those road stats are more in line with what Kent will do for the remainder of the season. If you have him on your roster at the moment he is a great sell high candidate. My advice is deal him now.

He is way over valued right now and as an example of this was recently traded in one of my leagues for Jim Thome and Tony Womack straight up.

I agree with AA, his year end average will not be close to .300.
