someone else stated it earlier and i have to agree
Brandon Wood is a future #1 fantasy pick due to position
With A-Rods move to 3rd and Tejada's power decling slightly
Wood will be the only premeir 5-tool ss in the league
this kid can mash!

There has been at least some minor concern that he won't be able to stay at short. But not a great amount.

Wood isn't a fivetool player, he won't steal a lot of bases. His batting average should be around 300

He's mashed for one season at A ball in a park and league where every Angel's prospect in the last 5 years has put up career stats, without improving his pitch selection at all from rookie ball.

The kid has huge potential, but lets see him do it at least one more level before we crown him the new king.

Delmon has the best chance. Has been very consistant at every level. Dont see why he wont perform in the majors at a near Pujols-level by the time he is 25 (6 years from now).

Besides, Pujols could be 30 years old ;-) .

I agree delmon has a good chance, but i dont see him putting up a high avg. i expect him to be closer to the .270-.300 range than the .300-.330 range. Also i dont expect him to be a 40 hr. guy more a 25-30 hr. guy, but overall delmon has it all. My choice or choices for the next pujols would be first.
Billy Butler- Butler is only 19 yrs old and has absolutely mashed at every level and looks to get called up at the ripe age of 20. He projects as a .300 or above hitter with excellent plate dicipline and anywhere between 30-40 hr, a season. Also with gordon coming on quickly as well, he has a battery mate to ensure that he either has a consistant man on base and/or protection in the lineup. So i think he has the best chance and comparison.
My number two guess is;
Daric Barton- Barton has the best plate dicipline in the minors and projects as a .330 type hitter with a bonds like ops. His power has not come into its own yet, mostly due to his age but he has tremendous in game power, which is where it counts but it hasnt translated yet, which im fully confident it will. Im projecting more hr, than the usual projections, which is actually how pujols turned out. So id say those two are my selections.
