Potential Impact in 2009

Postby giambiformvp » Tue Oct 21, 2008 7:49 pm

Who are some under-the-radar players that could make an impact next year? We all know about the big time prospects, but who could get some playing time that people don't really know about?

Arencibia (TOR)

Cunningham (OAK)
Evans (NYM)
Blanks (SD)

Escobar (MIL)
Antonelli (SD)
Cardenas (OAK)
Rodriguez (LAA)

Don't have my notebook with me, but off the top of my head.
Kila Kaaihue, 1B KC
Trevor Cahill, SP, OAK
Fernando Perez, OF TB
Tommy Hanson, SP ATL (should be on everyones radar though)
Lou Marson, C PHI
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.
