Vladdy is still about 2 years out. Johnson is good and ready, but still small. Killorn won't be a center in Tampa, and Peca is small roughly 5 years away.

So in short, we have a couple of center options, but its not as great as you might think.

And no offense to Vladdy, but I'm not exactly confident he ever sticks in the big leagues.

He seems like a pretty safe bet as at least a #3 center

I'd bet money on it. He needs to bulk up some, but his compete level and "annoying as **** to play against" factor, are very high. He's still a kid really. He'll get stronger and I could definitely see him in the 3C role.

Gotta approach Namestnikov with a second line or bust attitude. His talent level and work ethic are there.
