Fantasy Baseball: The 30-100 Club for 2009-2010

New, 1 comment

 

Everyone wants to draft the big power hitter on draft day. I know I do. It is no secret that the top power hitters-the 30-100 hitters-will be in demand on draft day. Here are the members of the 30-100 Club from 2009. I added a column to indicate whether I think they can remain a member of the 30-100 Club in 2010.

Andre Ethier 596 42 31 92 106 72 116 6 0.272 Y
Adam Dunn 546 29 38 81 105 116 177 0 0.267 Y
Miguel Cabrera 611 34 34 96 103 68 107 6 0.324 Y
Mark Reynolds 578 30 44 98 102 76 223 24 0.260 Y
Carlos Pena 471 25 39 91 100 87 163 3 0.227 Y
Justin Morneau 508 31 30 85 100 72 86 0 0.274 Y
Alex Rodriguez 444 17 30 78 100 80 97 14 0.286 Y

As you can see from this table, the members of the 30-100 Club also score alot of runs, and a few even swipe a few bags for you-Albert Pujols, Ryan Braun, Mark Reynolds and Alex Rodriguez. I am in the camp that says that Derrek Lee and Aaron Hill will not duplicate their 30-100 seasons in 2010. Jason Bay is a slightly different story, as we don't know how he will hit at Citifield, and he could go all David Wright on us in 2010.

Here are a few names who could join the 30-100 Club in 2010:

Matt Holliday
Hanley Ramirez
Carlos Lee
Matt Kemp
Michael Cuddyer
Kevin Youkilis
Chase Utley
Pablo Sandoval
Justin Upton
Ian Kinsler
Joey Votto
Adrian Gonzalez

I may be the biggest Matt Kemp fan, but his stock is rising. Hanley Ramirez had a disappointing 2009 season in the HR category, but he could easily hit 30 in 2010. The same goes for Carlos Lee and Matt Holliday, as both disappointed.

The rest of the list were all on the cusp of going 30-100 in 2010 and are very good candidates to go 30-100 in 2010.
