"All I can tell them is pick a good one and sock it." --BABE RUTH
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
This is by far the best looking list so far IMO
Seems to be about the highest I have seen them on any list so far this off-season.
If Alonso can OPS 900 or so, he deserves that ranking.
I believe he'll settle in at 825-850.
If he's at my projection, he's not even in the Top 100 discussion.

I predict Alonso will more than justify a 28 ranking.
