Brandon Belt. If he gets consistent AB, I think he'll have a breakout season.
THE SLUMPY SHOULDER HOMERUN TRACKER: 5
Catcher - Salvador Perez, KC
First Base - Brandon Belt, SF
Second Base - Jason Kipnis, CLE
Third Base - Mike Moustakas, KC
Short Stop - Starlin Castro, CHC
Left Field - Dayan Viciedo, CWS
Center Field - Bryce Harper, WSH
Right Field - Starling Marte, PIT
Pitcher - Matt Moore, TB
Reliever - Kyuji Fujikawa, CHC
Ike Davis is going to break out.
I like the team thing:
3B: I'll go with Lawrie
OF: BJ Upton
SP: Porcello (Moore should be the choice, but I figure everyone knows)
Between Montero, Ackley and Smoak... Two of the three will play great. Shorter fence will go along way with their confidence.

The names that come to mind for me:
Bryce Harper - 40 HR minimum in 2013. He could win the NL MVP.
Jean Segura - I think Milwaukee will let him run, he's got good on-base instincts. I can see .280 with 10-12 HR and 35+ SB.
Will Middlebrooks - He'll join the great young 3B ranks along side Longoria, Zimmerman, etc.
Mark Rogers - If he can secure the 5th spot in Milwaukee people will realize how good this kid can be. Brandon Morrow upside, IMO.
Tony Cingrani - Again, if he makes the Cincy rotation, I think the sky is the limit. He's got dynamic stuff.
Here's to feeling good all the time.
