In 2011 four players hit 30 home runs and stole 30 bases. 

  • Matt Kemp (39/40)
  • Ryan Braun (33/33)
  • Jacoby Ellsbury (32/39)
  • Ian Kinsler (32/30)

Considering Ryan Braun will play at most 112 games this season, I don’t see him being a repeat offender. The speed will always be there for Ellsbury, but only 20 home runs in 1,688 plate appearances prior to 2011. I don’t buy another 30 home run season for Ellsbury. 

These are the guys you need on your fantasy roster in 2012 to capture the elusive HR and SB categories.
