Some of the possible keepers for next year (trying to get Crawford right now)
Gordon's reasonable career arc will look fairly close to David Wright. They're very similar players in talent. The only question there is whether Dayton will be able to put humpty dumpty back together to the point that KC will produce some runs. Gordon and Butler are great talents but beyond that I haven't heard of much above average major league guys in the pipe. The question on Gordon and Butler's value is can KC put together enough of an offense to provide good peripherals to these talented young guys. Even if the answer is no Gordon should be able to put up .300/30/15 as a VERY conservative estimate. I've already got him slotted as one of my 6 keepers from 2007 to 2008 (I get to keep him as a minor leaguer this year as long as he stays under 130ab before August 12th
). He's just that talented.
