One guy to really watch out for is Michael Taylor, i really believe he could be the next Adam Jones.

I made that comparison over a month ago, but I still think Taylor has more speed and will have more of an impact on the bases than Jones has had. Of course, he's still got work to do at the plate, but he's got legit upside.

Could Hood be our Torii Hunter?

I dont know if he'll be as good of a defender as Hunter. He's got the natural tools and it's one area where I think his football background helps him out. But, the fact that he hasn't played any center I think is indicative of the fact that he doesn't grade out as well as a defender. He may be a solid defender on a corner, but don't know if he'd be able to have the impact in CF that Hunter's had.
