Inge .. the fact that he will be playing everyday, is a huge bonus, especially if he can hit for average.
Now while the risk is a littel greater than AJ,
A .280/18/70/70/8 is very do-able from Brandon this season and those would be decent numbers for any catcher. Plus if he is starting almost everyday, you won't have to roster a backup.
Wow, I'd say that's more wildly optimistic than very doable, wrveres. A lot of his improvement was a very fluky batting average jump and there was no improvement in his BB/K rate. The things I've seen have him batting 8th and followed in the order by Infante and Sanchez, so I just can't see 70 runs coming out of a 290-300 OBP and those hitters trying to knock him in. His steal percentage is about 50/50, and I can't see them letting him go something like 8-15 in SBs.
It's certainly not impossible, but I think a more reasonable point estimate for Inge is something like .260/12/50/60/4. While Inge might nail one or two of your projections, the entire combination of numbers you posted, I might peg at about a 10% chance.

He had an excellent year last year, and should repeat this year. And yet he goes near the bottom. Hes a solid catcher, one more proven than the others mentioned here. (Besides AJ.)
