I was surprised to see how well Hidalgo has been doing this season. I think he can keep it up. At this point, he is the one providing the most offense for my team. I picked him up two days after the season started!

I have my doubts about Hidalgo. I wouldn't bet on Hidalgo having a better season than Berkman. But I have been wrong many a time before...

Hidalgo is in a contract year.

Take a look at his career stats and guess which other year was a contract year for him. ;-D

With that having been said, he won't put up *those* numbers, but I don't see any reason why he'll do less than what he did last year.

Yes, he'll hit .556 all year.

yes he can keep it up.

He was very good last season. And everyone was high on him until it came draft time, and then he slipped.

I remeber last season. everyone saying how they were going to pick Hidalgo in 2004, and then everyone forgot about him.

Hidalgo is not going to be better then Berkman, I just don;t see that. However he can easily be a top 20 outfielder.

He won't be better than Berkman, but he'll be productive.

I also wouldn't be surprised to see him dealt if he continues playing hot. The Astros wouldn't mind trading him. That would hurt him, because the Astros have a strong lineup and play at a hitter's park.

yo guys! remember that this guy hit more than 40 HR in a season???

he can easily do that again with playin in a friendly hitters park and with such a good lineup that the astros have... i wouldnt be surprised if he winds up battin 90/40/120/300/10SB

Contract years do amazing things to players. I'm banking on him.
