Chris Young should be a lot cheaper than he was last year and a pretty good bargain IMO.

I'll second this. I think Votto has a huge year next year.

bj upton.


hes only hit 7 hr so far this year so im sure his ADP will plummet but he could easily go 30/50 next year.

8-o

i dont see him going much above 30/30. i know he has 33 sb this year, but i think thats mostly because he hasnt been hitting for power. i will be watching to see how he finishes the season.

has anyone mentioned justin upton? victorino seems to be overlooked. pedroia is 5th in the majors in 2B. think some of those will turn to hr?

Pedroia's 2B numbers are probably very inflated by Fenway.

I don't think so. He is listed at 5'9 which is probably a stretch and he already swings almost out of his cleats ever AB so I wouldn't expect any large surge in power, certainly 20 would be a stretch. 10-15 is a reasonable expectation of his HR output.

Pedroia gets to play with the kiddy wall in left field.

not young, but I think the guy will improve as he gets more opportunity - Juan Rivera (ala Milton Bradley)

Melky Cabrera
Matt Kemp
Kubel :-?
Konerko will probably be undervalued
Andy Laroche great plate discipline and good power now full time opportunity
Carlos Gomez will continue to improve
LASTINGS MILLEDGE if he stays quiet this year, could go nuts next year
Felipe Lopez (hopefully the Royals pick him up, still potential there)
Tulowitzki
Francoeur
Depending on how things pan out - Ryan Church
Gordon will improve
Loney will improve
Carlos Gonzalez
it would be interesting if Dallas McPherson somehow found regular playing time, longshot to think about
