    Tough Challenge 2014 - Enter only if you dare

    There's best pitcher, best hitter, best catcher, etc.  I'm not asking that. Who is the Dave Roberts (or along those lines) of 2014? Who's the guy that may not be the most famous player, but a player that will make his impact on a team so clutch, so important, that he will be famous possibly forever for the fans of that team. Obviously, famous players can do that, and do.

    This is a difficult question, I know, but it would be fun if someone could actually name who this could/will be.

    In case anyone is wondering, I don't just mean the Red Sox. Any team is fine. And I don't just mean pinch runners, although they can be included.

    Rather unusual kimsaythis that you didn't make your prediction in your discussion or your post:

    I will fall for the challenge and I hope he will be a RS player before too long, Justin Ruggiano?!<>

    Justin is a RH bat that had plaed for Tampa early on. He plays all 3 OF positions and he hit 18 HR last season with 50 RBI.

    He does most baseball  tasks well. Carried a .222 BA last season -he will hit higher in Boston. He would be a doubles machine and a threat to go deep/ I could see him fit in at a considerably lower trade tariff than Giancarlo. I would say perhaps an even up trade Mike Carp for Justin and we will be ready for the season.

    He will be the Dave Roberts for the Boston RedSox in 2014.

    First let me say how brave you are to make your prediction, and thank you. It's a really hard question, and so hard to answer. And I understand your annoyance with me not including my own opinion. I don't like when posters do that as well when they create a thread.

    I, admittedly, don't follow other teams as well as many here. My focus is actually on the Red Sox. I couldn't possibly name non-famous members of other teams. I just knew that others here probably could. I really just asked the question because there are so many more knowledgeable posters than I who actually may be able to predict this, and I thought it would be AMAZING and fun if it came true.

    I almost have to exclude myself because of my Red Sox bias. :)

    OK There's one BOLD statement about Justin Ruggiano. Hope it comes to pass. How fun would that be?

    I think Will Middlebrooks will have a breakout year with 25+ HRs and 100+ RBIs and carry a batting average of .290 - .300.He'll be more prepared for the season this year than he was last year.Plus,his new contacts should help him see the rotation of the ball more clearly at the plate

      He's going to be an important piece to help the Red Sox repeat as champions this year.

    Middlebrooks finally breaks through with a consistent year.  This is a make or break year for him, IMO.

    He definitely has a chip on his shoulder.  He seems like a good dude; I'm certainly pulling for the guy.

    I see four teams in our division who can win this division or grab the wilcard so it should be fun to watch.

    I can see him winning the "Comeback player of the year " award if he stays healthy.

    I agree, Craze. I think it's going to be great. Every season gets better because there's so much improvement for so many more teams.
