I think Chris Young will have a Markakis year. He'll get hot and put up some big numbers. Markakis was pretty streaky last year and I think Young will be the same way but will end up with the same kind of stats Markakis put up.

As for Morneau- I like the thought on LaRoche as well, but I don't think he'll come close to what Morneau did. Zimmerman won't put up the power numbers Morneau did but he'll bounce back. How about Konerko? Oh...Atkins! Atkins is my candidate.

Chris Young and Alex Gordon are guys who will be much better after the AS Break.

As for Morneau... I think we are already witnessing this in Adrian Gonzalez and Prince Fielder. Both are young and studly.

i wouldnt mind finding a player who can give me what Freddy Sanchez did last season. picked him up off waivers and went on to win the batting title.

i just picked up Gordon as a free agent so hopefully he can help alot as the season goes on.

I like the comments on Chris B. Young and Alex Gordon. I have Young, so I'd really like to see him get hot.

Although it wouldn't be that similar to Morneau, what about Teixiera in the 2nd half? I doubt people are going to cut him, but people have to be pretty low on him right now and he could turn it around.
