As AN approaches offseason GM/ projection mode of the team and it's imminent future, I wanted to see what AN thinks about our bright young offensive future Oakland A's. I want to see how AN views the expectations of these guys in waiting, and I am taking a shot at where I have the bar set for our specific youngsters in Sac-town.
Cardenas: I think Cardenas should shoot for Mark DeRosa and focus on being versatile in the infield and master playing at multiple positions but always starting and providing solid numbers with the bat.
Jemile Weeks: As far as Jemile Weeks, maybe he can vision himself after Chone Figgins and become a legit leadoff hitter/ dangerous stolen base threat???
Chris Carter: He definitely has the highest bar set of them all; Ryan Howard. At this point it seems the entire offensive future from the power stand point lies solely in this man. I sure hope he turns out to be the much needed "Superman" of the Oakland A's offense.
Brett Walace: As far as Wallace, I'm going to leave this one for the AN community, but in my opinion he kind of reminds me of Brett Boone, the good version (PED era in Seattle)
