What's the point of even parsing this list?
It's like making fun of a retarded kid's crayon picture of his new puppy.
18. Dustin Pedroia
2B, Red Sox
19. Tim Lincecum
20. Evan Longoria
21. Lance Berkman
22. Jose Reyes
23. Carlos Beltran
24. Ian Kinsler
25. Zack Greinke
26. Josh Hamilton
You are one mean Canadian!
Justin Morneau 14th. Joe Mauer 39th.
34. Francisco Rodriguez
Rather than ripping the Sporting News, let's give credit where it's due.
Jason Bay? Really?
Jason Bay at #41 is THE name that sticks out for you? Over all the others? Really?
And then there's Jason Bay (and Carlos Zambrano). I didn't realize ANYONE thought he was one of the best 50 players in the game.
Pedroia over Braun is an utter joke.
Bay is 20th among active players in career OPS+
This would be a little better, since it ranks all major leaguers by their OPS+ accumulated from 2006 to 2009, with at least 1000 PAs. Bay ranks 36th, and would certainly rank much lower after positional and defense adjustment.
I don't see what separates him from Dunn, Ibanez, Burrell, Cust, etc.
Pedroia WAR (from fangraphs)
Both are currently 25 years old. How is it a joke?
But after Braun has settled into a more appropriate position, the numbers are already reflecting Braun to be superior a player to Pedroia
in addition, Pedroia is widely considered to have played way over his head in 2008, from both scouts and stats people.
