    Jacoby Ellsbury #1 made me laugh. He's a fine player and all but he doesn't project as a superstar like Bruce, Upton, or Braun.

    Obviously, Bruce was a choice and was not taken. I know Zimmerman was available as was Tulowitszki. There was another name or 2, but I can't recall.
    They also said that Ryan Freel was a great baserunner, so I'd take their opinions with a grain of salt anyway

    Awesome week for Bruce though. Baseball shouldn't be as easy as he's made it look to be.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one to scratch my head that Ellsbury was #1 on that list.

    Yeah, I think you could make very solid cases for Braun or Zimmerman, but Ellsbury as #1?? I don't get that.

    Some people just completely lose their heads over players who can run really, really fast.

    Baseball Tonight is like high-A ball for baseball knowledge. They are speaking to a 10th-grade audience (3rd grade when Steve Phillips is on). At first I thought someone said Baseball America ranked the players in that order. But this makes much more sense now. Ellsbury is a fine leadoff hitter and we would love to have him. But Bruce is light years better than him now and will be in the future.
