Gomes (1B, conjecture)
D. Young DH
Crash Davis C (ok, so maybe that type of guy that will work well w/ young pitchers.)
I'm telling you watch out for the 07 and 08 Rays.
Sounds nice and its always great to get excited for the future but...
Lugo will likely be gone after this season and Baldelli won't be too far behind, and Gathright is a modern day Tom Goodwin. You know what you are getting out of Crawford and possibly Cantu, but Upton, Young and Gomes are still very much prospects. The D-Rays should be able to get close to a mid-league offense by 07 but not even close to a historical one unless they are supplementing those prospects with some great free agents.
