only problem with zim is that his team is so bad. no matter how hot he gets, he wont be able to produce many runs/rbi's, or even HR's for that matter w/ no protection

I think Francoeur will show a good glimpse of his potential this year. His average may be just below .300, but his hr and rbi will be very good. He has alot more plate discipline this year, watch out.

LaRoche is a guy that came to mind for me too.

I had Morneau pegged as a sleeper last season & almost cut him five/six weeks into the season because he was struggling so bad.

We all know what happened.

LaRoche's struggles remind of Morneau last season.

Kotchman and Connor Jackson are both young guys who have probably been cut in many leagues because of slow starts. They are both capable of going .290/15 from this point forward. Not quite Morneau, but nothing to sneeze at. Kotchmann is especially attractive considering that he is hitting #5 behind Vlad until Rivera comes back.

By the way, Rivera himself is another guy to watch. He appears on track to return as planned by the All-Star break latest and could do .290/12 in half a season no problem with a bunch of RBIs to go with that.

Also Edwin Encarnacion.

Zimmerman I just do not see. He was horribly overrated going into the season and even if starts producing at at .300/25 rate the line-up around him is so bad and his R and RBIs will be so deficient that this is nothing to write home about.

A dark dark dark dark horse? Andy Marte. He could be more like this years Betemit, a consensus top prospect who got untracked but put up some nice power numbers from June onward. He is a big question mark and has proven nothig so far, but the talent is there.

getting nick johnson back will go a long way to helping Zimm.
