Next Big thing???

Postby BGbootha » Tue May 08, 2007 1:19 pm

Who is the next decent call up...

after losing out on Hughes, I am now the #1 waiver in my money league.

Who is the next call up. Just curious who I may have a shot at.

Gallardo is white hot right now and so is Braun. Both seem like they will get called up at some point.

I'm also very high on Adam Miller.

I passed on Hughes with the #1 WW and snatched up Billy Butler, who I see having the potential of Travis Hafner.

Ryan Braun is the next big thing. I am holding my now #1 waiver for him.

As a Ryan Zimmerman owner, I say it's Braun.

Gallardo, Niemann, and Miller are the 3 guys that I am looking forward to coming up now. All 3 have legit chances of being up in the near future.

Very, very soon, Clay Buchholz is going to work his way into this conversation if something goes wrong with Jon Lester and the Red Sox want to replace Tavarez as the #5 starter. Most likely it'll be Lester, but you never know...

He's a guy you want to keep an eye on. Awesome stuff, awesome control, and he entered the year as the Red Sox #1 pitching prospect. He's got a 35-3 K:BB ratio in 27 AA innings right now.

I would keep my eye on SP - Slowey from MIN. I think he would wind up with better numbers than most SPs getting the call...AND you might not even have to burn a waiver on him....but for argument's sake, I'd take Braun for batters and Gallardo for pitchers.
