I suppose that is fair.
I guess from my point of view if you're looking for production this year I'm not sure that any of these guys are a great bet, because even if a guy like Myers gets called up by June there is no guarantee he is going to hit enough to be more valuable this year than some of the replacement level talents, like De Aza, currently on the waiver wire.
I simply assumed that if you're looking at the likes of Taveras, Myers and Hamilton that you're making a long play for 2014 and beyond.
