    People that see Anderson playing will love him. He is VERY good on defense, and the kind of little spark plug guy that people root for.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    That's who I was thinking. Even though him having a strong season wouldn't be considered a "breakout," I'm really interested to see if he can reach the next "prospect" level (not necessarily league level). Doubtful he'll ever reach Bailey's level-hype-ranking, but it'd be great if he can push Cueto for the 2nd best pitching prospect designation. Since Sarasota is considered a pitchers league, it'll be disappointing if he doesn't put up some impressive numbers there.

    I also almost picked Drew Anderson to break out this year, so I think he has a chance to be one of those guys.
    Dougdirt:

    Thanks for the clarification. You're right, it certainly wasn't my intention to dimish those two guys' accomplishments; both are excellent players, and both have a good chance to be in the breakout group, although I think Janish's tools make make him a better bet. Janish did get a late season bump to AA but it was only for 15 ABs; likewise, Strait got pulled up to AAA for 10 ABs. I'm not sure what either of those meant, so I was trying to not split hairs. Anderson got a late season call up to AAA in 05 for 39 ABs. I didn't mention that for the same reason.

    Juan Francisco is another guy who might make his way into the radar next year at Dayton.
