Jim Callis' AL Top 10


In an AskBA, Callis posted his AL Top 10. Intrigued me, as this was only the 2nd semi-major place where I saw Price go ahead of Wieters (the other was the MiLB thing). 1. David Price, lhp, Rays What he showed us in the postseason was just the beginning. 2. Matt Wieters, c, Orioles He could be Mark Teixeira—as a catcher. 3. Brett Anderson, lhp, Athletics The best player Oakland got in the package for Dan Haren. 4. Trevor Cahill, rhp, Athletics It will be fun to watch his friendly rivalry with Anderson. 5. Neftali Feliz, rhp, Rangers Just one reason the Braves wish they could undo their Teixeira trade. 6. Tim Beckham, ss, Rays Yet another multitalented star-in-the-making for Tampa Bay. 7. Eric Hosmer, 1b, Royals He could be the best of all the special hitters K.C. has drafted recently. 8. Lars Anderson, 1b, Red Sox Even if Boston signs Teixeira, it will find room for Anderson in 2010. 9. Travis Snider, of, Blue Jays Of these 10 guys, he might make the biggest 2009 impact in the majors. 10. Mike Moustakas, 3b, Royals In a few years, he and Hosmer could combine for 70 homers annually.
