Can Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney be the Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker of their generation?

Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker came up together to the Detroit Tigers in late 1977. Both started in the majors modestly and built a lasting impression on the game. 

The double play combo played together for 19 seasons. Both players spent their entire careers with Detroit, a feat almost unheard of today.

Trammell hit .285 with 185 home runs and 2,365 hits and was the MVP of the 1984 World Series.

Lou Whitaker batted .276, hit 244 career homeruns and amassed 2,369 hits.

They were so good together that some, including Cal Ripken, Jr. have said that “Sweet Lou” and “Tram” deserve to be in the Hall Fame as a tandem.

So my question is this: Can Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney be the Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker of their generation?
