Fantasy Baseball: NL 20-20 Hitters for 2009

I am veering off the second half stats and onto the full season stats, and wanted to see how many NL hitters went 20-20 in 2009. By 20-20, I mean the hitter hit 20 HRs and stole 20 bases.

So here is the list of 20-20 hitters in 2009:

Player AB R H HR RBI BB KO SB BA OBP SLG
Kemp, Matt CF LA 606 97 180 26 101 52 139 34 0.297 0.352 0.490
Rollins, Jimmy SS PHI 672 100 168 21 77 44 70 31 0.250 0.296 0.423
Ramirez, Hanley SS FLA 576 101 197 24 106 61 101 27 0.342 0.410 0.543
Phillips, Brandon 2B CIN 584 78 161 20 98 44 75 25 0.276 0.329 0.447
Reynolds, Mark 3B ARI 578 98 150 44 102 76 223 24 0.260 0.349 0.543
Utley, Chase 2B PHI 571 112 161 31 93 88 110 23 0.282 0.397 0.508
Braun, Ryan J. LF MIL 635 113 203 32 114 57 121 20 0.320 0.386 0.551
Tulowitzki, Troy SS COL 543 101 161 32 92 73 112 20 0.297 0.377 0.553
Upton, Justin RF ARI 526 84 158 26 86 55 137 20 0.300 0.366 0.532
Werth, Jayson RF PHI 571 98 153 36 99 91 156 20 0.268 0.373 0.506
McLouth, Nate CF ATL 507 86 130 20 70 68 99 19 0.256 0.352 0.436

I included Nate McLouth since he missed the list by 1 SB, which he certainly would have stolen had he not been injured. No one on this list is much of a surprise except for Troy Tulowtizki. I don't know anyone who predicted he would steal 20 bases this season. I don't see Tulo swiping 20 again anytime soon.

Justin Upton is a bit of a surprise as well but I have a feeling he will steal 20+ again in 2010, along with 35+ bombs.

Who from this list could move to the 30-30 level? Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez, maybe Justin Upton, maybe Jayson Werth, and the darkhorse is Mark Reynolds.
