We need something in between the MLB All-Star Game and the MLB Futures Game to showcase young talents like Starling Marte and Kyle Seager who have already made it to the big leagues but aren't yet popular enough for the Mid-summer Classic.
Guys playing in the Futures Games don't always pan out and guys playing in the All-Star Games are usually already reaching the end of their prime. They both hit on some of the best candidates, but neither one gives us a proper perspective on what the MLB landscape will look like five years from now.
In order to do that, it's necessary to assemble a list of the top, young candidates at each position.
Some of these guys will be all-stars in 2013.
Barring injury, all of them should be all-stars in 2018.
