So much is being talked about right now in what we might expect from each young player this year, I just wondered , purely for discussion, who we thought would have a break out season.
Below is why I put each player's name in the poll:
Brandon Phillips: really waiting for BP II here. Last year he was forced into a full-time clean-up hitter, which most agreed did not suit him. Will we see the 30-30 guy or last year's model?
Jay Bruce: First full year but still very, very young.
Joey Votto: All-Star potential?
Edwin Encarnacion: Ditto? Can EdwinE become a new face of the franchise? 35 HR's and 100 RBI's too much to expect?
Chris Dickerson: can he force his way into the full-time LF'er? Can he be a surprise player of the NL?
Jared Burton: Best set-up man in NL? Top closer even?
Edinson Volquez: Can he improve on 17 wins? Cy Young 2009?
Johnny Cueto: Move from #4 to #2 in the rotation? Contend for the CY Young? Could Cueto 2009 = Volquez 2008?
