The Detroit News is getting into the prospect game and Lynn Henning lists out his top 20 prospects. There sure do seem to be a lot of top 20 (and ten or eleven) lists floating out there already. He puts Casey Crosby over Jacob Turner and he has Ryan Strieby all the way down at eight. Not sure why he left off Al Avila, unless he doesn’t consider him a prospect anymore. Also at the Free Press is a solid column on baseball in Panama.
Also, I’ve gotten a couple of emails about my comment about Lou Whitaker getting the shaft. Way back when Ryne Sandberg got elected, I ran down the numbers and to help back up my case, Beyond the Boxscore also picked up the fight.
