Will the Blue Jays have two 30+ HR hitters?
I came across a really cool website called HR Pace.com, which basically takes all the guess work out of calculating how many home runs and RBI’s that a hitter is on pace for. Taking a look at the numbers below, the Blue Jays have two potential 30+ HR hitters in Aaron Hill and Adam Lind.
Incredibly, Aaron Hill averages a home run per 17.42 at bats. That leads all second baseman in the league and ranks in the Top 10 players in the MLB in HR Pace. Coming in a close second on the Blue Jays, Adam Lind averages a home run about once every 18.14 at bats.
Even if Hill and Lind trail off a little bit in the final eight weeks of the season, they should put themselves in a good position to clear at least 30 home runs. The last time the Blue Jays had two 30+ HR hitters on the team was back in 2006 when Troy Glaus hit 38 home runs and Vernon wells hit 32.
