But saying upton is an OF then why don't we throw in Gomes into that mix but they can't field.

I wish we could just have a power hitting OF and then just be able to have some pop in our excuse of a lineup.

I agree we need some arms that can develop into the major leagues more but if we are already getting so many players ((All IF)) then why don't we deepen up at OF to.

Upton can play OF, its his INF ability we can't use. As far as power IF bats, what do you think we have with Delmon, CC, and Rocco.

CC will probably hit over 20 same with Rocco and DY is supposed to be a 40 HR guy.

I'm not sold that CC hits more than 15

Rocco isn't more than 25 imo

And I'm not convinced that Delmon Young can succeed with his character, but I agree in the future he could be the guy and most likely will be.

I also like Longoria as our draft pick, I think he'll mature nicely.

CC over the past couple years:
HR
5
11
15
18 last year.

He keeps hitting more and he will hit over 20 this year. Rocco hit 16 in half season, he will def hit over 25, and Delmon will be fine with the veterans around to help him out.

You forget that CC is streaky in his HR scoring, he had 7 HR over the period of a month and a half.

I agree he could hit around 20, but it wont get to 25 ((this year)) I love the way hes developing.

I like Rocco but I don't expect him to develop to more than a 33-38 HR guy

Not quite top-tier but very handy; reminds me of raul ibanez alot.

Delmon will be a very good pro, I agree, we just need to give him time.

If Rocco hits 33 and CC hits 18 and DY hits in the 30's that will probably be the most HR by an OF.

You forget the Braves and Blue Jays could top that but I see your point. And in my first post I mean OF in our farm system because we don't really have an A or B-list prospect in the outfield that we can say really WOW to. But I see your point.
