Yeah, I think Affeldt will be huge. Coco Crisp is another.

Jake Peavy isn't exactly unknown, but I think he's going to have a terrific season this year.

Ramon Nivar

Could steal a lot of bases in Texas, and with the capability of playing IF/OF (in real life, not Yahoo) could unseat Laynce Nix or move Soriano to the OF (doubtful).

Willie Harris is basically in the same situation, except he has a starting job as 2B for the ChiSox. Could steal 50 if he's starting all year. Ozzie Guillen has stated that he's devoting a lot of his time to making Harris both a better fielder and hitter.

Some of you may have heard of those 2, but most of the other youngsters are power hitters who are hyped up so I guess there two are the most obscure I can think of.

What will Jason Lane be like this year? If he is an OF, then I would be surprised if he makes the big league club this year because of Biggio, Berkman, and Hidalgo.
Lane is someone to keep your eyes on.

At some point, the Astros are going to figure out that Craig Biggio is not a starting CF and stick him on the bench. If it happens sooner rather than later, I like Lane to have a good year.

Guillermo Quiros - catcher of the future for the Jays. Will share time behind the plate this year. He is right after Joe Maur for catching prospects but nobody talks about this cat.

Lane will get some games in behind Biggio and Hidalgo, and will be the Backup First baseman when Bagwell needs a rest.

He could end up starting if an injury arises or yes the Stros put Bidge in a backup role.
