One player would wish would get playing time

Name one player you wish would get a full year of ABs, whether it'd be for power, steals, batting, anything.

There are several obvious names, but for s's and g's, I would LOVE to see Jarrod Dyson of KC get a full season of ABs. The kid can RUN. I remember there was a point early last year where he had like 4-5 steals but not a single AB. He was the ultimate pinch runner.

He had 11 SB in 26 games last year, and 38 SB in 83 games in AAA. That's 49 SB in 109 games. 70+ steals is doable for this guy with 150 games.

Who do you guys have in mind?

Eric Young, Jr for some speed and a good OBP and is still listed at 2B in yahoo

Allen Craig for a good AVG/OBP with decent pop and who's also listed as a 2B

Nolan Reimold; though that may change this year, he really hasn't been given a fair shake by Baltimore since 2009

I agree on the Jarrod Dyson call. To bad the kid can't hit... Julio Borbon syndrome.

I'd like to see Eduardo Nunez get a full season of at bats. Think he has some untapped potential. (Enough to keep him for $10 in my al only league...).

Dominic Brown. If he can hit, the athletic ability will take care of everything else.

I was looking forward to a full season of at bats from De Aza. Not sure if that's going to happen now.

Trumbo. He's got no position and an injury and a lot of competition just to work his way into the line up. But he was first base eligible guy with some steals. He looks like a legit player. I was hoping he'd be a way to bypass the top 1st baseguys in favor of a 5 category guy. Hosmer got real expensive real fast for having put up somewhat comparable numbers.
