I was just watching the Baseball Tonight fantast baseball preview and at the end of the show they had a bold prediction segment. One of the analysts actually predicted Corey Patterson to go 30/30 this season. Now that is bold. I could see 15/30 but no way he goes 30/30. I would love nothing more than to see the guy breakout and hit 30 homers and get on base at a .340-.350 clip but I just don't see it happening.

Other Reds notes:

Brandon Phillips is ranked as the second best 2B and Harang was the 10th best pitcher.

I saw that and my eyes popped. I can definetly see 30 stolen bases but I'm not sure he can hit more than 20 bombs even in Great American Ball Park.

If CPatt goes 30/30 this year the Reds will win the Central.

Book it.

Agreed. If he goes anywhere near that, it's going to be a mighty fine year. It would also mean Jay Bruce would get a whole year in Triple A.

Aaron Harang being the 10th best pitcher?

Don't forget about the Jr injury factor.

The 10th best fantasy starting pitcher.

Guys usually ahead of him:

Santana
Peavy
Bedard
Webb
Haren
Sabathia
Kazmir
Hamels
Verlander

Fantasy Island?

In '04 he hit 24 HR's and stole 32 bases, so it isn't completely impossible.

I have him down for more like like 20/30 (if, of course he plays full time and all).

Mods, I really don't think this is fantasy related.

I Tivo'd the ESPN Fantasy Baseball show and their "Fantasy Games Editor" (Eric Karabell) said- "Ready, Corey Patterson 30-30 this year. Way back in 2004, for Dusty Baker, he had 24 HR's and 32 steals. Remember, a bold prediction, it's not easy and Felipe Lopez, one year for the Reds, had 23 HR's in that Great Ballpark for a lefthanded hitter. Corey Patterson's going to be motivated, he wants a long-term contract, I'm not saying it's going to definitely happen but the steals will happen. I think he could close in on 30 HR's as well."

Oh yeah baby! Bring it on! But seriously, with Patterson likely platooning with Freel or Hopper, it's going to take CP getting HOT right out of the gate. Enough so that CP can claim the CF job to be his alone. I think 15-18HR's and 35-40SB's would be more likely for Patterson this year.
