 2. Ian Desmond will once again have a 20/20 season with a Silver Slugger

If I am right in this prediction it will be the third year in a row Desmond has accomplished a 20/20 season. What a feat it would be. Ian is in his prime at 28 and the power is there. He should hit 20 plus homers relatively easily barring injury. With Matt Williams and his aggressive approach, odds are he will get to the 20 stolen base mark.
