Busts this year, better next?

Postby bazzy_51 » Tue Aug 05, 2008 11:19 pm

i know this isn't a keeper/trade forum but just wondering about projected stats of these 2 players next year...

Joey Votto - i mean this was a huge prospect and has had bright spots here and there since his call up...but can we expect 30 hr? or close to 100 rbi?

Chris B. Young - looked to be a valid canidate for a 30/30 season this year and isn't even sitting on 15/10 yet this year...this cat gonna get the average back in check and start hitting the ball or what?

Add Rickie Weeks to this list.

...of course, I've said the same thing around this time the past two seasons. :~(

McGowan and Loewenn. I think both AL East pitchers will be solid bets somewhere down the line.

Just a heads up; Loewen is going to to attempt to make the transition from pitcher to outfielder.

Clay Buchholz still has great stuff, but needs to learn how to pitch.

I never really saw Votto having a huge power upside. I always saw him as more of a Sean Casey 1st baseman.


Chris Young has had strikeout problems. Last year he provided what i expected his peak to be, 30/30 with a lousy batting average (though 230s is lower than expected). If he could produce better numbers than 2007.

Did you have to bring the injury up? Just reading that makes me cringe. :-{
