Crystal Ball: Michael A. Taylor, OF, Nationals

Moving forward with our series of Crystal Balls, we take a gander at Washington Nationals outfielder Michael A. Taylor, per reader request.

This is intended to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.

It is not just thrown together; I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground.
