Of the 2010 Pirate Rookies this year......

I know we've all talked about movement of players and possible new players to be added and subtracted to the buccos, but i thought it would be fun to discuss next year as far as...(and hopefully this wasn't posted before since I've been checking the fan posts occasionally)

Of the 2010 Rookies..

Is there a Dark Horse that will surprise the Buccos next year (a la Neil Walker)?

Who will regress?

Who will make a major leap in progress from this year to next?

Of all the current pirates on the team, who will rebound to have a good year next year (assuming 2010 bad year)?

Right now I think Andrew McCutchen has played well, but I was hoping for much after his rookie season, so hopefully he plays and rebounds much better next year.

There's a good chance Neil Walker regresses...I don't know why I say that but to me it just seems that he's played so well this year beyond my expectations that I expect the other shoe to drop sometime.

Pedro Alvarez would be the easy pick to make the major leap in progress from this year to next year, but I think Jose Tabata may make more progress next year (i.e. hoping for a bit more power).
