Which rookie will have the greatest impact THIS year?

Swisher, Sizemore, Burke, Closser, G. Floyd, Reed, Street, etc. These guys are all on sleeper lists. And they may all be worth a good look in a dynasty league. But, which, if any, will be able to help out your team this year?

I'd put my money on Blanton before those guys.

I'm thinking Kazmir as well. He looks like a good shot to be this year's Ollie. Perez, on the other hand, could be this year's Dontrelle Willis.

Mauer's not considered a rookie anymore, right? Because if he is then he would definately be my pick ;-D
This field, this game, it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh people will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

Fantasy-wise I take a shot at Burke. Reed would be my next choice.

Barmes should be good, and Reed also Burke.

Burke, Reed... maybe Iguchi.

Mauer barely missed being a rookie, again. (He did, however, have one of the best rookie campaigns ever, as a result, at least if you just look at AB/HR, SLG, OPS, etc.)

McPherson could have an impact when he comes back.

If Chipper Jones dies midseason, a la Daryl Kile, Andy Marte might have a big impact.


Wait... we're talking FANTASY impact, right? If not, I think Reed will help his team the most.
