    Homeruns Pool

    I am in a HR pool and need to pick the player who will have the most HR's from the following groups:
    1- Howard, Ortiz, Pujols
    2- Soriano, Andruw Jones, Jermaine Dye, Berkman
    3- Glaus, Texeira, Konerko
    4- Nick Swisher, Derreck Lee, Jason Bay, Vern Wells

    Let me know your thoughts---thanks
    My first impressions are the players I named first

    1) Pujols-he could have beat Howard last year had he not got hurt.
    2) Berkman-one of the most consistent hitters in MLB, going to be helped out by Carlos Lee batting behind him as well. Soriano is probably going to have a dropoff after getting paid.
    3) Konerko- I would go with Glaus, but he is too injury prone, Konerko is a rock.
    4) Lee- Best power hitter out of the bunch, should be healthy for this year.

    I'd go Pujols, Berkman, Konerko, and Swisher - who added 20 pounds of muscle last offseason (I wonder how he did that...).

    Definitely don't go with Glaus with that 3rd group. He gets hurt too much and Konerko's a lock for at least 37 or so. I like Texeira too, but I'd go with the consistency of Konerko.
