Power hitting Prospects

Postby CeeLoGreen » Wed Jun 28, 2006 1:58 am

Are there any Francoeur, Gomes, Howard types that might get a callup after the break.

I got all three last year and it was instrumental to my winning the league.

My team went on a tear to end the season and I would like a repeat.

Anyone have some info ????
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

I know people will think I'm crazy, but I think Hunter Pence will come up by the end of the year.

I would hope the Royals would give Butler and Gordon a look.

From what I have read, scouts seem to think Gordon will have Glaus type power.....

Shealy's killing the ball right now, if Colorado can find a place for him, he'd be the one. I don't see Pence getting a callup and I don't think he'd make much of an impact if he did. There aren't a ton of big power prospects that are Major League ready right now. Maybe Nelson Cruz, but even he might not be ready.


I think Shealy will get traded to a lucky team(Baltimore?) that'll get him for about nothing(the Rockies were asking for Hayden Penn, who's not much)

If Shealy comes up it won't be with the Rockies, I think thats a certainty at this point.

Penn is nothing? :-[
