He has never shown that type of power, he's more likely to hit 20-25 HR and has the potential to maybe hit 30 a few times. But 40HR is not a realistic ceiling, let alone what he will do this year.

These are the posts that get me coming back to the fantasy cafe! I love this prediction. Why? Because I drafted this 40 home run BEAST in the 13th or 14th round in a very competetive 12 team league. Lickity Split gets my knows everything vote!

Seriously. I reached for Liriano. I picked him in the 1oth round as my 3rd pitcher behind Peavy and Shields, and took Hill as my 4th pitcher. I had him in '06 and I know what kind of skill he has, and fantasy points which he can potentially deliver. He threw for 1.2 scoreless innings today!

I plan to reach for Ryan Howard this year. My league uses on base percentage, so Howard is a nice 4 category guy. Plus, every year I typically use a 'balanced approach' to the draft and so I never own studs. I'd just like to get his 50 homers and not have to worry about scratching out homers from a mix of Todd Helton and Hatterberg!
