Who will put the monster season together?

Here are my nominees for guys who could snififing at the top that won't be drafted #1:

Little Ups aka Justin Upton-looks the most like Matt Kemp
Evan Longoria-Second half was HUGE, 3B a wasteland
Tulo-As good as he's been, has never put together THE year
Cargo-was #1 two years ago
Adrian Gonzalez-to my eyeballs the best swing you'll ever see. Batting title, 100/30/125 a year removed from shoulder surgery a possibility

Your thoughts?

Here's hoping it's Upton AND Longoria. Gonzalez-- depends on if the Sox get it back together. If they take a year to find their mojo again, he'll drop off. Then again, Carl Crawford had a down year last year and I expect him to rebound.

Kemp or Upton for the next two years?

so the answer to this one was actually Longoria based on your ranking write ups, Grey. I have spidey sense about Longoria. My post was actually a fishing trip to see if any others felt similarly about him. I'm into the predictive powers of consensus, sometimes. The other players I listed were red herring. He's at the breakout age. The talent is obvious. He's discounted because of a non-chronic injury last year. Maybe Tulo wasn't a red herring...you said what I said. The big season will happen. 162 played and monster numbers. Wish he still ran a little, tho.

I think Upton can have a bigger season than Longoria (30/20 vs. 35/10; the rest equal) but his position eligibility makes Longoria more valuable.
