Fantasy Baseball: NL Second Half Homerun Leaderboard

New, 5 comments

I am starting my NL second half leaderboards with the power guys, the guys that help you in 4 categories with one swing of the bat. You can use these leaderboards to guesstimate how a hitter will do in 2010 by just doubling their power numbers in the list below.For example, Ryan Braun could easily fo 32-112 in 2010 based on his 16-56 second half power numbers.

The Brewer's Prince Fielder appears to have quieted his dissenters with a huge 2009 season, going 46-141-.299-.412-.602-1.014. His power-filled season could lead to the Brewers dealing him in the off-season. Fielder's HR/FB% increased from 14.8% to 18.9% in 2009. He also increased his LD% from 17% to 20% in 2009. His HR/FB% and LD% for 2009 are very similar to his 2007 ratios when he hit 50 HRs.

Troy Tulowitzki also proved his doubters, including me, wrong with a strong 32-92-20-.297-.377-.552-.930 season. Amongst the shortstops in the NL, there is Hanley Ramirez and Troy Tulowitzki, and then there is everyone else. Tulo has become an unheralded superstar in 2009, and that should continue into 2010, should he stay healthy. In comparing Tulo's ratio batting stats, one should compare his 2009 season to his 2007 season since he was injured in 2008. Tulo increased his HR/FB% from 9.7% to 15.1%, and his BB% from 8.4% to 11.6%.

And who expected the Cub's Derrek Lee to go 35-111-.306-.393-.579 after going 20-90 and 22-82 the last two years? Not me. And there were some people saying back in April that Lee was lost at the plate. Well, he certainly proved them wrong as well.
