What sort of numbers and general development do you feel like you need to see from the four next season, to indicate they're progressing at an acceptable rate? What sort of numbers do you think are realistic? Looking a season or to further down the road, what would be their ideal role on the team and place in the lineup? Would it be some combination of Tabata and McCutchen batting one and two, or would you prefer to see McCutchen batting third (does he need to develop more power to bat third on a theoretically more competitive team?). What about Walker, second, or sixth/seventh? Assuming you do bat McCutchen and Tabata one and two, and drop Walker down, and Pedro eventually becomes the cleanup hitter where does the number three hitter come from?
