    WMP has never hit above .270 in a season and he averages a BB every 16 ab's.

    Based on a 550 ab season that would slot him at about 35 walks for the year, here's the best HR by a guy (under 27) who hit under .280 and walked 35 or fewer times.
    Code:
    HOMERUNS                      YEAR     HR       BB       AVG    
    1    Sammy Sosa               1996       40       34     .273

    So when Wily Mo hits 41, he'll be at the top of that list.

    His career HR rate over 550 at bats is 33 homers. So if he improves on that at all, we're looking mid to upper 30's and beyond.

    He will strike out too much to get decent pitches to rock into the Ohio River. 31, tops.

    He did walk in both his AB's today. That's crazy. I give him 38.

    Re: How many homeruns from Wily Mo Pena this season?

    I'd say 30-33, higher if he plays every day, but I am still afraid that Jerry will try to work in a lot of ABs for the 4th OF, if everyone stays healthy. That may cut into WMP's ABs and ability to get comfortable and settle in at the plate.
