The baseball season is one week old. If this were football, it would be just past halftime of the first game.
With that in mind, everyone should step away from the ledge. There's no
reason to get too high or too low on anyone. However, we'll need to make
quick judgements on guys that are off to fast starts:

the last five seasons, Omar Infante hit a total of 22 home runs. In the
first five games of this season, he smacked three jacks. Without any
speed to speak of, we can confidently leave Infante on waiver wires.
you've slept on the Royals' offense over the last few years, you've
missed value. And this year will be no different. Eric Hosmer is off to a
piping-hot start because he is one of the best young hitters in the
game. Jump on board early here, as Hosmer is still just 22 years old.
