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 ????

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

to answer your question: here's my personal favorite. Ryan Shealy.

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)

Tim Dierkes wrote an article about power prospects on his blog RotoAuthority, he mentions:
Josh Fields
and
Howie Kendrick... but I don't remember the rest.

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

Penn is nothing? :-[
