WL obviously means nothing in ST, but we are destroying teams right and left. A couple of things I'm interested in this year:
-Taveras. I suspect Taveras could make the opening day roster of many teams in baseball and not look foolish in the MLB. But, if he waits until June 1 to make his debut, he is cost-controlled for an extra year. So long as Holliday/Beltran can stay healthy for that long, probably should wait to bring him up, but I think he will be up before September.
-Wong. I've heard he could be up as soon as May, but that's largely because of a lack of confidence at 2B.
-Matt Carpenter. If he can play adequate defense, his bat would be great in the lineup everyday.
-Miller/Rosenthal/Kelly. I think there's a good chance at least 2 are in the rotation by the end of the year.
-Wacha. Molina said yesterday that Wacha is MLB ready today. With less than 12 months of pro ball, that's incredible, even for somebody that played all 4 years in college.
