Desmond Jennings- name is better than his production a career .248 hitter ( sitting at .239 on the year). had a .314 OBP last year and has a 3.04 OBP this year. will he hit 15 homeruns and steal 30 more bags..Probably if your expecting more than that or think his average is miraclesly going to to go up then your crazy.

Eric Hosmer- struggled last year and is struggling this year

Joaquin Benoit- Dont trust him
Carlos Gomez- last year was his first year ever hitting Double digit HRs and is alwasy going to steal bases. his OBP is .3111 (was .305 last year). had only 20 BB all of last year.
