They don't have anyone who can hit home runs other than Jack Cust, and he's probably not going to hit more than 30 (he had 25 last year).  They made some nice moves after their disastrous first half, especially in getting rid of Giambi and Hannahan, and they may have seen the emergence of Rajai Davis. 

It's hard to believe that they'll be one of the very top offenses in baseball as they were in the 2nd half, considering how few home runs they hit (4th worst in 2009 with 135).  They were able to score a lot of runs in the second half without hitting many home runs and are an intriguing team to watch next year.
