how does everyone rank these guys rest of season? who is due to break out, who is going to continue stinking it up?

Adam Jones
Justin Upton
Prince Fielder
Kendrys Morales
Corey Dickerson
Adrian Gonzalez
Jason Heyward
Joey Votto
Matt Kemp
Brian Dozier
Yasiel Puig

I have a good feeling Adam Jones, Adrian Gonzalez, and Votto will right the ship. Upton, Dozier, Kemp and Dickerson will probably be frustrating, but there should be some red hot stretches coming if you can time them. Heyward may return to respectable yawnage again, but it's probably not enough if you're trying to make a run. Prince and Kendrys are better than they've shown, but how much better? They could be at the career crossroads. Puig is a wildcard. I would normally expect a bounce back but I could also see him getting benched.

Guys I'd buy:

Justin Upton
Joey Votto
Yasiel Puig
Brian Dozier

Within reason on all of them...

My concern about Dozier is whether he's playing hurt. Wrist injuries are a bitch.
