Carson - .271-10-61 - I see him becoming a reliable backstop in terms of defense and handling the pitching staff, as well as turning into a quality 8-hole hitter. He has decent speed for a catcher, so mix in 5 steals and 65 runs scored.
Corey - .277-9-57 - With more big league at-bats, should see average eventually climb to the .280 range. I don't see the power developing this year.
Carson - .287-60-150 - Return of the king in 2008; Howard will be the MVP again.
Corey - .284-56-142 - Another monster year. Will strike out less than 180 times, also.
Carson - .307-33-111 - He's my favorite and will get MVP votes for the next 5 seasons, but he'll have to settle for only being the game's best 2nd baseman rather than it's most valuable player.
Corey - .312-26-101 - Phils 3rd MVP candidate? I don't see it happening. Won't put up HUGE numbers.
Carson - .295-21-79 - His career year was last year, but J-Roll will still score plenty of runs and I foresee he and Vic swiping over 100 bags collectively.
Corey - .286-24-85 - No repeating of gaudy '07 numbers, back to Earth for J-Roll.
Carson - .259-28-84 - Double plays await Pedro both defensively and offensively. Phans will come to like his ability to handle the hot corner while bringing consistency to the 7th spot in the lineup.
Corey - .251-26-81 - Lots of swings and misses. Small park will increase power numbers slightly.
Carson - .249-25-87 - Begin the slow downard spiral. I see Werth and Taguchi getting more playing time because of the sporadic tendencies of Burrell's bat.
Corey - .257-30-96 - Another typical frustrating year from Burrell. We shouldn't expect more at this point. I predict June 3rd as the day I give up on Burrell this year.
Carson - .301-16-71 - Huge season for the Flyin' Hawaiian, with 50+ steals and 110+ runs scored...oh, and a Gold Glove too.
Corey - .291-15-58 - Also look for close to 50 steals...if he stays healthy, which I don't think he will. He'll battle Jenkins for leader in DL time.
Carson - .267-19-73 - He'll do nicely against righties, but Charlie will find some way to F-up the platoon and expose Brett Favre to lefties more than need be.
Corey - .274-22-86 - He'll bounce back from that .255 average last year and be a Phan phavorite by May...or he'll get hurt and we'll see Jayson Werth for 120 gamess.
Tomorrow, the pitchers.
