One of these is not like the others: A look at the MLB leaders in home runs

Home runs2 4.11.2013

Chris Davis, Michael Morse, Justin Upton.  These are your current MLB leaders in home runs at 6.  Who cares if it’s only April 11th.  The season has been going FOR ALMOST TWO WEEKS ALREADY.  Time to start keeping track.  All three of these players were somewhat recently cast off by their former teams.  Davis went to the Orioles last year, Morse was traded to the Mariners in the off-season, and Upton was trade for 50 cents on the dollar from the Diamondbacks.  These guys have been hot to start the season and Upton is making my Upton brothers projection looking really stupid.  The difference is that Upton is perennially touted as an MVP candidate.  The other two are not so much.  Here is the tally of their home runs so far this season.

Home runs 4.11.2013

How much can these guys keep it up?  Projections:

  • Chris Davis: 33 HR
  • Michael Morse:  31 HR
  • Justin Upton: 29 HR
