Simply put, which one of the current Minor League players will be called up and step up to put up huge numbers??? I'll go with Jay Bruce from the Reds, though dusty may hurt his chances.

No one will have a season like Braun. He was insane last season. To think that he missed a huge chunk fo the season and still put up triple crown type numbers...

The amount of young talent in baseball is just jaw dropping:

-Troy Tulu
-Ryan Braun
-Gallardo
-Hughes
-Chamberlain
-Buchholz
-Upton
-Upton
-Jones
-Bruce
-Ramirez
-Kemp
-Looney
-Cain
-Lincecum
-Longoria


The game is simply loaded with young talent right now.

Which is what I love to see in the MLB. I love rookie talent, and the development thereof (at least where it is applicable in a given team). For me, I have seen too many aging and slowing veteran players receive contracts simply because of the "experience" they provide. Although I'd like to think that I don't undervalue experience, there is a point where not playing your younger, upcoming talent has the tendency to hurt your ballclub.

Longoria will have the best rookie year, but nobody will duplicate that Braun season.

Evan Longoria is going to be a man-child.
