    It's obvious he has the potential, but he's more likely to hit closer to 30 again, then 40. Seriously, who's gonna be batting 5th behind him? The bat boys sister? If he's crankin them out consistantly, teams will stop pitching to him so until we get a good 5th hitter, he probably won't reach 40.

    Now, if d'Arnaud comes up and hits well right away and can bat 5th.......

    Yeah in Arizona. It was unfortunate though, I think they were all solo shots

    Definitely capable, especially if we add solid bats in the line-up where pitchers have to face him and not pitch around him.

    Not while he is wearing a Mets uniform.

    1. Definitely capable, but it won't happen.
    2. d'Arnaud is a capable #5 hitter, but he'll be up until after the all-star game. Duida must be solid as the #6 hitter which is possible, but I don't think he handles the media. He needs to play in some city not named NY, Boston or Phillie.
    3. I hope they don't sign Hairston, he's more likely to be closer to the 2011 version rather than the 2012.

    If a homegrown player becomes a star, trade him ASAP! This is the kind of thinking Sandy is cultivating in Mets fans... sigh...

    A jump from 32 HR to 40 HR is a lot more than it seems at first-glance. I would guess Ike caps around 35-36 HR at best.

    I think he'll strike out 180 times.

    Normally, I would agree, but not in Ike's case. His numbers were insanely bad for the whole first half of the year. Like, historically bad. He had 12 HRs for the 1st half but still managed to be tied for 4th in HRs by the end of the season. If he is capable of that kind of power for half a season, then he should be capable of upping his 1st half by 8 or so as well.

    Now, he might not do it this year due to lack of protection, but he is more than capable.

    Protection is definitely a big part of it. The fact that he saw that many pitches to hit in an abysmal lineup is impressive for sure.

    It'd be great to have Ike represent the Mets in the HR Derby this year at Citi.

    Hopefully Met fans can vote him to start over Votto and Adrian Gonzalez.
