Best of the Rest: January

  • Baseball America has released their top 10 Royals prospects. They do excellent work and have a really top notch staff but I do disagree some with their rankings. I like Moustakas at #1 but I would rank Hochevar ahead of Cortes. Also, they need to quit with the projected lineups three years down the road.
  • Dayton Moore says Teahen and DeJesus need to produce this year. This is a make or break year for Teahen, he needs to return to 2006 form or this may be his last year in KC.
  • Alex Gordon is hoping for a better season. Hillman plans to bat Gordon seventh this year which just baffles me. With Buck batting eighth and TPJ batting ninth why would any right handed pitcher in his right mind give Gordon anything to hit?
  • Joe Posnanski claims KC is winning the Santana race. Is there a better sportswriter in America better than Joe? Is there one even close?
  • Mike Sweeney won the Hutch award for his off the field causes. Saying Sweeney is a classy guy is like saying the sky is blue or the grass is green.

  1. No, there is not a better writer than Joe Posnanski. I think I'll go read TSOB again, because he is THAT good.

    I agree about projecting lineups that far down the line. It's pointless; rosters are too fluid and players are too...humanly inconsistent to even think about how a lineup is going to come together in 2011.
