I enjoyed seeing people's jockeying of the 'next wave' pitchers like Jordan Walden, Neftali Feliz, Matt Latos, et al. I was hoping to maybe do something similar with some hitters who may be bubbling and ready to burst up into 4/5 star territory in 08. Maybe in this poll I'll limit the candidates to slugger types, as opposed to up-the-middle speed types.
So, most of these guys are folks who put themselves on the radar this last year, or slipped (like Rowell and Parmelee) from elite to interesting in the conventional wisdom; some of these will Dopirak out, some will just chug along, and some will burst out from their chrysalis into full Pearceness or maybe even Braundom.
Let's see who we think will be next year's hotshot.
Also, throw out candidates for a possible round two.
