What youngsters replace the fallen stars?

Postby Fantasy Guru » Mon Jul 25, 2005 12:08 am

Okay, this thread might not make any sense at first, but with time, and some responses, it might start to make sense.

But I'm trying to see who the cafe thinks will take place of the former top positions picks.

Examples: a couple years ago when Soriano took over for Jeff Kent and Brett Boone. Or Pujols taking over for Todd Helton.

Some of the more recent ones..
With Giambi in doubt, Tex and Lee have taken over as top 1B picks.

While Sosa and Bonds (if he's limited for the rest of his career because of the knees) have been replaced by Dunn and Cabrera

Anyone else have input?

How bout Brian Roberts? You gotta think he will be a top 3 2B now.

David Wright will be there eventually....

Joe Mauer?

morgan ensberg comes to mind with chipper and a couple other 3b's getting up there in age.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Cant forget Utley either. i predict he'll put up jeff kent numbers given a full season of playing time. Maybe even better.

M. Olivo may someday hit above his weight.

Sean Burroughs someday will hit more than 5 Homers in a season.


Seriously, just look at the mid-season rank lists.

1b...Tex, Lee and Pujols are the class at 1b now...wih D. Ortiz and Delgado in them mix too. Guys like Howard could come onto the seen, but to displace the top 4 or 5 here would be some feat.

2b...it is Soriano and Kent and Roberts. Weeks and Cano and Utley may be a force in the future.

SS...Tejada is clearly a cut above everyone. Jeter, Young are in the mix. F. Lopez may be a force in the future.

3b...Arod is a cut above everyone. Next up would be Rolen and Aramis Ramirez. Chavez and Blalock are in the mix. It would be almost impossible for a new 3b to displace this group on the charts.


OF: Lots of good names here: Manny, Vladdy, Abreau, Crawford, M. Cabrera, Sheff, Suzuki, etc.


SP: Who knows. Pitchers are erratic. Last year's undisputed leader Santana is this season's Mr. OK but not tremedous. Take your pick from Halladay, C. Zambrano, Santana, Sheets, Harden, Prior, Peavy, Oswalt, etc.
Some big names like RJ and Schilling, Hudson and Mulder are fading fast.

CL: Mo, Lidge, and C. Cordero lead the list. Wagner is up there also.

I think D.Wright will end up being a top 3 3B in the next year or two. No idea who he will replace...

Morneau will replace Thome.

Wright will replace... I don't know. Some good third baseman.

Mauer will replace Pudge.

That's all I can think of right now.

Oh, are we talking about next year? I was just saying in the future... Yeah, Morneau won't be Thome next year.
