I picked this guy up a couple of days ago, and he has really delivered for me. I love me some Mench!

if mench is anything he's streaky

but he tore it up in spring training, i figured him for 30hrs this year, and that doesnt seem to be a stretch now.

but yeah, give him a week and he'll be 0for again

What I find funny is that guys like Mench and Shelton, who are both 25 HR power guys, get on a hot streak in any given month of the season, and then they are suddenly crowned by some as 40 HR guys :-t . Every month in every MLB season some average power hitters will get hot for a few weeks, but that does not make them the next David Ortiz or Albert Pujols people. Come on guys, we are smarter than this aren't we? ;-)

i dont think anyones going that far...but 30hrs isnt out of the possibility for mench.
he's one of those guys who has been average, but has had the potential to be above average.

but yeah, he wont be hitting 40 anytime soon

Any player in the bigs can and will go on hot streaks and slumps. But its also true that any guy such as a Mench, can have a breakout/career year where he exceeds all expectations. Hot spring, prime age, texas, improved footwear, this could be the year, or not, we'll see
