Delmon Young and Alex Gordon will have the most impact for 2007. Dice-K will have more, but isn't really a prospect despite being #1 on BA's top 100.

good picks! since they've been said I'll go with Homer Bailey and Yovanni Gallardo. They probably won't come out of ST in the big leagues, but they'll be up soon enough.

Gordon will have the biggest impact. Butler or Hochaver could be right behind him along with Longoria because of lack of talent on those teams right now. As stated above, Delmon Young.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

I've got to go with Young here, partly because KC might keep Gordon in the minors to delay his arbitration. I don't think Hochevar will make it up before September, especially considering his AFL "performance." He's a great prospect, but I think the royals should and hopefully will play it safe with him.

Dice-K?
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

Right now Teahan is getting work in the outfield, so i would guess Gordon could break camp with the Royals.

I don't think Delmon will put up the #s that you might expect. He'll have solid speed stats, but I don't believe he will show much power. I see him with about 15 hr's and 20-30 sbs, if he finds a place to get him 500+ abs.

As far as 2 prospects with highest impact, I'm going with BJ Upton and the other kid from Arizona Quentin. I think Young will struggle with avg, which will keep him in the bottom of the order. Quentin, however, will provide both power and avg, which makes him the better prospect IMO.

Also, don't forget about Kendrick, who could flirt with a batting title this year.
