30 HR for a rookie is a major accomplishment

This is still a guy who has never played a full 162-game MLB season and is coming from a league that's, at best, AA-equivalent. There is going to be a sharp learning curve for Abreu, maybe in a year or two we can talk about 30 HR production being disappointing for him (hopefully that is the case), but in his first pro season in the Majors, that would be a real nice year for him.
