Sizemore? Unless you count him as already emerged! But I don't think he's a stud yet.

I think Milton Bradley could become one.

Forgive me for being ignorant, but how has Hermida's popularity grown by such a huge margin since the end of last season?

I mean, I've heard he's gonna be good, but this is going to be his first full season.

Johnny Gomes has 40 HR/20SB potential with good run/rbi totals but his AVG will probably never see .300

I agree that Holliday and Crisp look like they could fall into that category. Also among the younger guys, Bay, Wright, Utley and Felipe Lopez. Sizemore also qualifies but I have this funny feeling that he may take a step or two back before he gets better.......

I agree. I think he has a shot at 20-20 but he is way overhyped so far. He has limited supporting cast and a pitcher friendly park which will not help him.

Also, he only started showing power potential in 05 so I'm a little hesitant to label him as a 5 category threat yet.

Do we categorize Bay as a stud yet? I mean he's only done it one year. Maybe in a keeper league he's a stud, but for this year?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
