Too Low

The Sporting News lists the best 50 players in baseball as voted by 100 experts (Tom Trebelhorn?) . Braunie is the only Beer Maker to make the list He's at.....32. Too low, in my biased opinion. Derek Jeter in the top 10 is a F-ing JOKE!

Yeah, thats a rather poorly thought out list... its so bad i cant even laugh at it, just...confused...

Did anyone know that Josh Hamilton fought demons as a substance abuse addict on his way to MLB stardom?

AP said...

Pujols being ranked #1 is disrespectful to Pujols and the game of baseball. Pujols should get his own list, and then we need a seperate 2-49 list.

I'm so sick of hearing about Josh Hamilton and his wonderful backstory. How is taking your talent and pissing it away by being a shitbag drug addict fucking loser a great story?

anytime I see him swinging a bat I yell "Crack!"

This is coming from a Cubs fan...but 32 is way too low for Braun. Give Yo another year and he would definately be on that list. Aramis should be on this list as well. Jeter has no business in the top 25, yet alone in the top 10, especially above Texiera. Mo riveria is too high as well....he's still great but 9 is too high.

You all should know that these kinds of lists are made only to get hits to a web site because almost nobody ever agrees with them.

If nothing else, the list will make Braun even more cocky and we can look forward to even more pimp walks after HRs. Works for me :)

Rickie Weeks is hands down top 10 material

Darnit, Matt beat me to it.

Jeter should be no where on the list at all.

It just goes to show you that even HOFers pick players based on reputation. It's like when Rafael Palmeiro won a Gold Glove for playing 15 games at 1B.

I don't know if Willie McCovey or Rollie Fingers (2 of the people on the panel) have seen a major league game in the past 10 years.
