Most of those guys had 2-HR nights. I still put my money on the yearly studs: Bonds or Sosa or someone like that.

I think Thome will have a shot in the NL as the ball seems to carry well at the new park.

I'm going to vote for Soriano in the AL. He moves to a very good homerun homefield. Arod will be hurt by Yankee stadium.

I'd say in the NL the obvious favorites of Bonds and Sosa, and maybe Sexson thrown in there.

In the AL, A-Rod or Vlad.

Piazza is clearly energized by his newfound opportunity to legally marry in certain states!

I'll bet anyone $100 that he won't get 486 HR this season.

I'll go out on a limb and pick Bonds = 56 HR (to tie Babe Ruth).

I think Garret Anderson will have a big year, and lead the AL with 53

Last year was the first year in 9 years to not have a 50-HR hitter. Methinks there will be at least one 50-HR hitter this year. Might as well be Bonds again.

I mean, c'mon, we've got over a dozen guys projected to hit 100+ HR this year.
