Over/under 15 homers on the year? I will put him at 22. Anybody else care to take a stab?

Yeah okay... crazy It's my guess. He's had good streaks and never got past 13 since 2006. People thought he was gonna hit 20+ homeruns after that year but was hurt for sometime in the last two season.

He's 26 years old this year...an age when players often have a break out season. Of course, that usually correlates to a second or third full season. This will be Mauer's fifth full season. But I think we can expect a lot of those doubles he has hit in the past years to become home runs.

I think that - somewhat like Ichiro - he could hit a lot more home runs if he wanted to, but it would be at the expense of 20 to 30 points on his batting average.

20+ this year. At 6'5" and 230 lbs he should hit this year in and year out!!!

I'm thinking he's gonna have 20+ hr and a 320-330 average.

Guys, I dont think we are seeing a power surge. Have you seen his HRs? They BARELY got over the fence. Having said that, enjoy him for what he is. He is a high average hitter who gets on base, works the count and is overall the best or next to the best (Morny) hitter on the team and one of the best in the league. he may not hit for power and if he doesnt, I dont care.

So put a number on him for the year, if he focused on homers like some have said his BA would dip. Joe just wants to be the best hitter in the game. Just imagine him puffing his cheeks out at every fastball he sees wink

okay, my number is 14 blasts, 80 ribbies, .325. He missed a month of the season and has never been a big RBI guy.

Martinez will give him a run for his money on the all-star ballots!! He'll hit in the .330 range and have 17 dingers and 85 rbi's!!

there were talking the other night about whether mauer will have enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title. what if he hits .400, would they use the same plate appearances threshold for it to count?

he will have the plate appearances as long as he stays healthy..... and I will venture to guess he will end at .337 16hrs and 82 rbi........I feel I over estimated on all 3 except for maybe the average but I would love to see him finish around these numbers.......

I am not sold that he will break 15hrs this year even though he has 4 and missed a 5th......only time will tell
