Re: Who do you think will have their breakout year
I don't care if its obvious, Jay Bruce for me.
I love Drew Stubbs, but he basically "broke out" last year. He played great for him and I hope he can repeat it this year. I just don't see the potential to push to another level the way Bruce can.
Likewise, Volquez has had his breakout season and we've seen his ceiling. We're all just hoping he can be that guy again.
If I had to pick another one it would be Chapman. His overall stats may not be special for a specialist, but I suspect there will be stretches of this season where he is unhittable in the 7-8 innings and that is a weapon over the course of 162 games.
