Manoman’s Top 20 (20-11)

This is the first entry of a 2 part series titled Manoman’s Top 20

 I was thinking about doing something like:

  • The Top Awesome Players That Are Now Playing Today
  • My Grand Slam Crew of Active Baseball Players

            I was even thinking of doing something like…

  •            The 20 Most Spectacular Men That Are Playing the Game of Baseball Today

                              (thankfully I didn’t go there)

So with that, let’s get on with the list!!!

                                                                   
 

 

Adrian Gonzalez.jpg

20. Adrian Gonzalez 1B

Always flying under the radar and puts up great numbers at the massive Petco Park.

Dustin Pedroia.jpg

19.Dustin Pedroia 2B

The “Little Man” had great numbers in 2008 and he won the MVP Award. Even though he is a Red Sox, I like him because he shows so much determination and dediication to the game of baseball.

Nick Markakis

18. Nick Markakis RF

He is a consistent threat at the plate and makes great plays in the outfield.

 

Nick Markakis dove to catch a short fly ball off the bat of Mark Loretta.

17. Grady Sizemore CF

Grady is a great young hitter with 40-40 potential and he is very exciting to watch on the field.

David Price MLB.jpg
 16. David Price SP

David is an amazing young pitcher who is going to be the next Johan Santana. He has electric stuff and is the future ace of the Rays.

Jorge Posada.jpg
 15. Jorge Posada C

 

He is a homegrown Yankee who has played with the club for more than 10 years now. He also provides great leadership and order to the pitching staff and is cool to watch in the game.

Ichiro Suzuki.jpg14. Ichiro Suzuki RF

I like how Ichiro plays the game and he is practically a guarantee to get on base every time he is at bat. He has gold glove caliber fielding and he is a steals machine.

CC Sabathia.jpg13. CC Sabathia SP

CC is now in N.Y.C. and with him comes at least 15 victories and a great attitude. I feel like he is one of my “home boys”.

Mark Teixeira.jpg

12. Mark Teixeira 1B

Mark is an up-beat kind of guy that brings his best to the field every game and always has a smile on his face.

11. Tim Lincecum SP
“The Freak” is a phenomenal young stud that blows hitters away with his impressive arsenal of pitches. Admit it, he looks like a kid and yet he still dominates guys that are in their 30’s.

Congratulations Boston you just signed your first baseman to a 4 year $41.25 million contract. Four more years of Youkillis to come. Here’s how us Yankee fans feel about that.
