    I think his power was somewhat a fluke because he had one very hot month. considering the rest of the season 20 HRs are more realistic.
    Other than that of course he is the real deal and heavy favorite to win the batting title again.
    He also hit 8 home runs in August, though. The 11 in May was flukish, but he didn't revert back to the old 10 HR a year Mauer after that hot stretch was over. In a full season, with Target Field seemingly being more HR friendly, he should be able to hit 25 if he stays healthy for the whole season. He certainly flashed that '09 power with his 416 shot to dead CF on Saturday.

    But the loss of the Dome, and the turf, is going to hurt his BA. I'm thinking .325 BA, .410 OBP, 30 2B's, 25 HR's, 105 RBI.
