I'm going with Verrett and Ceciliani(sp?).  We need a breakout CF. Ceciliani has a spark plug quality about him like Lenny Dykstra.  Verrett will be indicative of the many pen arms that see tha majors this year.
Mets trade away reigning CY Young award winner.
Still have the best pitcher in Baseball.

Re: 2013 Breakout Candidates 


I'm picking Juan Centeno.
The 23 year old catcher is built like a fireplug, throws out almost 40% of would-be base stealers and has hit for high averages with little power (including AA last year).
I'm not saying he will replace Travis, but I think he will find some power at Las Vegas this year and move up to be a very good major league backup catcher at some point.

Aderlin, Ynoa, and to a lesser extent Nimmo. 

When it comes to Nimmo, I think the fact that Brooklyn is tough on lefties is being ignored...at least in the minds of some of the national writers.

Bull dinkey!
They used to say that Braves Park in Boston was tough on righty batters. When he was asked about it, Rogers Hornsby said "Yeah, I only hit .387".
If a guy can hit, especially if he's a line drive hitter, then he can hit. And the ballpark (fences, wind, etc.) can't be used as an excuse.

I'm not sure how to define breakout but I will say:

Miller Diaz
Plawecki
Wilfredo Tovar
Cecchini

In my mind it's basically someone who's flown under the radar a bit, but has a chance to move up the rankings with a real good year.

For instance, I'm not saying Goeddel is a potential ace, but he's a guy who's barely in our top 20, yet he's probably got mid-rotation potential if things come together for him.

yeah with Kaupe so far above the radar right now, I wouldn't go with him despite being the obvious choice. wink

interesting group. Interesting that it helps every one of our system needs too.  A CF, Power hitting OF, SS, and LH starting pitcher.

Kaupe doesn't need to hit. He can just walk all day long. .100/.800/.100 next season. Book it.

Vaughn cuts down the K's and raises his average 15-20 points...
Puello stays healthy and puts together a 20/20 season...
Reese Havens stays healthy and gets his strength and conditioning back and turns into a 15 hr .285 avg guy showing hope that he still can turn his career around in the future...

A little bit of wishful thinking, but each is not without talent and have the ability to make a big leap this year.
