I think expectations are too high for Kaz. I think Gibbons one day will hit 35 hrs. With a improved lineup, 110 rbis could happen.

The Padres SP

I think Durham has a good chance of coming back this year. Well, at least as good as Alomar had last year. :-b

There are quite a few guys that could step up big this year.

Peavy, Gibbons, Dotel are my leading candidates.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Wanna throw out some more names?


i dunno if i trust crede. i had him as a poterntial slepper last year, and he sucked :-P :-P :-/ [/b]

Have faith on Crede, he put up a nice second half when no one was noticing, ;
293/340/519/859 w/ 12 HR 43 RBI 1 SB in 266 AB's.
His eye ratio nearly doubled as he was figuring pitchers out (either that or facing the Tigers more often, not sure).

But, everyone will forget about him in my league, and he'll fall nicely, and could be a nice rebound. SOrt of like Hank Blalock did, but without the gaudy AVG
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

You say it could be the year for:

SS Angel Berroa
OF Marlon Byrd
1B/OF Jay Gibbons
SP Jon Garland
SP Josh Towers
3B Joe Crede

It was already the year for Berroa and Gibbons in 2003. These two will only get better!! The others I believe will flounder.

Texiera will become the #1 third baseman (I know he will be a 1st baeeman but he is at 3rd at least as a keeper on my team). He can easily hit 35-40 homers.
