Not far off? That's pretty optimistic as Josh hasn't even played above A-Ball. If he can put a solid season together in Birmingham this year, then he might be ready to take over the starting job in 2007. But 2006? I highly doubt it, unless he turns out to be the next Albert Pujols.

I don't think it's that far fetched. He really came on strong last year and could be a September call-up this year. I just hope he has made the appropriate defensive strides.

And we are talking about replacing Crede.

And we are talking about replacing Crede.

Many players make the jump from AA to the majors, so a full season in AA plus winter ball plus spring, he could be ready for 2006 if he progresses quickly and has a big year. I certainly am not going to say that it will happen, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Again, if Crede has a good year, like I happen to think he will, then you either sign Crede to a 2-3 year deal and move Fields to first to replace Konerko, or you trade Crede.
