Actually I bet this will be Dallas Macpherson's year. Last year could've been his breakout year but he was bit by the injury bug all season long. Remember midseason though when he was healthy and the Angels were giving him a good deal of PT? He was one fire cranking homers, he hit like 2 walkoffs. Im really liking him for next year.

Oh my God. Planning on drafting him and Oliver Perez one and two next year? :-D

Victor Diaz is not Lil' Manny. Not even close. I hope no one drafts him with those kinds of expectations. Don't get me wrong, I think he may be useful and all, but he's nowhere near that caliber of a hitter. I bet Ryan Klesko outperforms him next year. Seriously.

I agree. I think Diaz will be a serviceable player but he doesn't resemble Manny except maybe for his body type.

I've been saying this for 4 years and I will say it again. Kearns will finally break out next season. :-D

I am still holding out hope too . ;-D

I like A. Boone, and Morneau to bounce back nicely.

How about, Orlando Hudson ?

Winn has finally found hinself leading off for SF. I'll be trying to get him as my 3rd or 4th OF next year. I like Crisp and Monroe also in that slot.

.....i'll take that bet..klesko is done...as anyone who has owned him the last 2 years will attest...i am not saying vdiaz is gonna go .320 40-130 but given 150 games he will easily be .290 25-90...the l'il manny is still a l'il way down the road..after all, he is just 23 yo

Couldn't disagree more. They may not do as well as this year but still will have good numbers. Lee has a good chance at 110/40/120/15/.300.

Of those not mentioned,

Breakout: Matt Murton, Matt Cain

Bounce Back: Pierre, Renteria

Good value picks for AL-only leagues: Raúl Ibañez, Mark Ellis, Emil Brown
