All Star Break

Oh man, thinking Trumbo was going to start in the minors really was a silly thought! Granted he is pretty much an outfielder these days and wouldn't have been a top 10 player there.  Adam LaRoche really proved us wrong as we had him ranked 30th!  The scary part is that he is known for being a second half hitter.  For his career he is a .295 hitter after the break compared to a .247 prior to the All Star Game.  Big things coming in our Nations Capital.  No way Carlos Pena is on this list in September, especially if longer continues to miss games.
