Young, breakout offensive studs for 2009

Postby West » Wed Feb 11, 2009 7:59 pm

Who's your favorite this year and why?
A few guys that some people like are Jay Bruce and Chris Davis. I'm not sure what I think about them. Bruce struck out 110 times in 413 at bats last year. Davis only walked 20 times in 315 PA. What do you guys think?

Matt Wieters anyone? Almost everyone jumped off the Colby Rasmus bandwagon last year after he got hurt, anyone want back in?

Cameron Maybin, Justin Upton, Delmon Young, Lastings Milledge all had shots last year. Anyone want to pimp them this year? I'm sure there are guys I forgot, who are they?

I'm just throwing stuff out there. You guys are the experts. What do you think? Let's just keep it to 25 y/o and under and generally unproven guys, nobody in the top 50. Okay, if you already took Wieters in the top 50 of your keeper you can still talk about him.

Many thanks
-West

Maybin and Adam Jones give me a "fantasy boner"
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm more of a "post-hype" guy.

Dukes with regular playing time has 20/20 written all over him.

I'm not sure if Milledge has the power to go 20/20 but 15/30 should be within reach.

Ian Stewart has 20 HR pop at some shallow positions (2B/3B) not to mention there's been talk about him moving to LF. He might not have a starting job as of yet, but the Rockies would definitely be wise to get his bat in the lineup more often than not.

I did a search before I posted and there was one in early November but I wanted to focus on offense. I didn't feel like bumping an old thread either.


I like Dukes and I forgot to mention Span. Thanks for the insight guys.

i like pie as a deeper sleeper. he showed a solid power/speed combo in the minors and never really got much of a chance with the cubs. if he finds everyday playing time in baltimore, i could see him breaking out and posting like a 15/20 type season.

I'm extremely high on Jeff Clement, Adam Jones, Elijah Dukes, Lastings Milledge and Billy Butler. I don't think Jay Bruce will perform up to ADP.
