Who has "emerged" this season as a 2005 high-round pick?

Postby BronsonPinchot » Sat May 01, 2004 10:12 pm

Meaning, what players have moved themselves, as of now, into the upper tier of legit, quality starters in the MLB. By that I mean guys like Aubrey Huff, Aramis Ramirez, Bob Abreu, Garrett Anderson, Luis Gonzalez, etc....
I'm thinking:
Miguel Cabrera
Dunn
Burnitz

In other words, perhaps the question is 'which sleepers that are playing well will continue to do so consistently enough to warrant a relatively high pick next season?'

I think that you can take Burnitz off you list - he's not going to be playing at Coors next year.

it is way to early to tell. ask this again in July or August. plenty of guys start off really hot then fizzle. Brian Daubach had 8 home runs in the first tw weeks several years ago, and then hit only 12 more the rest of the year.

Jose Reyes ;-7

Seriously, Cabrera is the only one that looks like a solid bet. Dunn started hot last year too.
