    Your 2016 breakout players

    What players do you think will finally put it all together and have a monster 2016 major league season?

    I'm going with George Springer. From what I saw of him during last year's playoff games and this Spring I think if he can stay healthy for an entire season he'll put up some monster numbers and not just in the home run category.

    I also think if Maikel Franco can stay healthy he'll have a spectacular season.
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    There seems to be a similarity among these names...something they all have in common...can't...quite....figure it...out.

    But it's certainly a blowout of names.

    I do think Springer is the right choice and is who I was thinking before opening the thread. The other names, well.....................

    Well one of those guys is a jerk so I hope he does not breakout on principal alone.

    A.J. Pollock - I'd have to admit he was under my radar as a potentially star player until I saw the top 10 right now that he was in and got a better appreciation.

    I'd like to see Strasburg break out, too (at least "break out" in that he has a full, healthy dominating season such that he can be considered the ace of the Nationals).

    Matt Duffy! Great rookie season got overshadowed by Bryant but he's a great player. Very likeable too, as are most of the Giants
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I see a trip to Louisville or Pensacola in his future. It doesn't help him much the Brandon Phillips is in his back pocket. Seems as all the players BP 'mentors' seems to hit the skids when hanging out with him.

    I hope Jay Bruce gets back to his pre-2013 hitting days!

    I know I have been down this road before, but Jackie Bradley Junior is my pick.

    Do you think he will break out? I agree he must or his playing time is going to drop. I just have not seen anything that tells me he is moving in that direction. He is an exciting player to watch for sure, just with an OBP below .300 there is a limit to that value.

    Definitely under the radar but don't you think he already broke out?
