Sports Illustrated ranks YOUR top 20 young hitters!

Postby wavetide007 » Fri May 13, 2005 1:45 pm

I agree with some of the rankings but for the most part... I don't.

Where is Pronk?? I guess he's 1 year too old.. but if they were going to make a cut off they should have made it 25.

1. Pujols
2. Dunn <--- too high
3. M. Cab
4. Teixeira
5. Crawford <--- top "hitter" ?
6. Beltre <--- too high
7. V. Mart
8. Patterson
9. Blalock
10. Rollins <--- too high
11. J. Bay
12. Morneau
13. M. Giles
14. Nick Johnson
15. Mauer
16. Baldelli
17. Barmes
18. Willy Mo
19. Burroughs
20. Coco Crisp

#10-20 has way too many errors

Personally I think MCABS is the best considering his age.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Morneau should be top 5 on that list. Patterson is too high, too.

the list looks good. i don't like where the placed barmes, it just seems like they're riding the bandwagon with him. i mostly agree with the top 4 hitters. i feel there's no real argument against them because right now these guys are a lock to hit 40hr and drive in 120rbis this season. and with the exception of dunn they're all a lock to hit around .300. the one thing i didn't like to see was burroughs, he's been an absolute bust. i think i would have wanted to see baldelli on the list, but i guess they're going to doubt him because of his injury.

Personally, I think it's Pujols, M Cab, Tex, and then the rest. These three are going to be the ones you tell your grandkids about.
