So many people hate Hunter Pence for whatever reason. I aint a follower. The fact is he is much better than Rowan was with the team, even though he didn't have the average. Rowand could have never had all those rbi's on the team. The fact that Pence averaged so low and still had all those RBI's while Posey also had 100 RBI's, makes it even more evident that Pence sure knocked them in.
But I'm talking about next year. Hunter Pence is gonna raise some eye brows. He is 29 years old, right in his prime. But he hasn't had an aberration type year yet. Every year has been sort of the same. I can tell that Hunter is capable of having a year like .280 40 HR 100 RBI
Why is that? Because he has the body for it and he has the strength for it. Hunter Pence is my favorite player to watch. He has the most raw talent. He reminds me of a 1920's throwback player who has a funny looking swing but relies on his natural raw strength to hit the ball.
It's no secret that when Pence hits it, the chicks go wild and the bat makes a very loud sound. The guy is in shape, compare him to panda. Compare him to fat Rowand or even Huff. The guy is dedicated to baseball. He resembles a 1920's throwback player with long limbs. He can still improve. He can become a little more patient at the plate.
So I'm calling it right now. 40 homers next year, but at least 30. If you guys don't think he is strong enough to hit that amount, you are nuts. He possesses one of the strongest bats in the game. If you don't believe me, then there is a reason why he is rated so high. He has the potential. It will all unfold next year at age 30. Many MLB players had their best years in their early 30's and I am telling you this guy is a stud.
Pence has the charisma, the determination, the ability, and the love. Just his name Hunter Pence stands out. The way he warms up stands out. The way he swings his bat like a hockey stick on deck stands out. His awkward interviews stand out. His high socks stand out.
Pence is gonna be a Willy Mccovey type player. He has the athletic ability. He has the fitness, the strength, the power.
Pence aint no small guy. He looks thin at times because he is jacked. Go GOOGLE Shirtless Hunter Pence. The guy has MUSCLE. You guys will see.
