We already know about the big clubbers (Berkman, McLouth, etc), but let's talk about the underachievers.
BJ Upton has the incredible steals total, but what about the pop? Same goes for Alex Rios... will these two guys hit enough out of the park to warrant their preseason expectations?
Chone Figgins, on the other hand, has only 15 steals and his average is bumpy at best. Chris B. Young has the pop but very minimal steals. Are these high picks going to start tearing up the basepaths?
Then there's Vernon Wells, who is as far away from his 30/30 (or was it 20/20?) preseason prediction can get. Robinson Cano and Delmon Young are also guys that have barely made a blip towards their assumed results.
I'm assuming most of these guys will increase their numbers somewhat at least, with perhaps Figgins having the toughest time to do so given his injuries, but does anyone think any of these guys will go on a tear to get close, if not match, their 2008 predictions?
