Back to back: Albert Pujols tops SN's top 50 MLB players list (SportingNews.com)
Quoth Messr. Dittmore:
For our collective debate, here is [Wednesday's] release of the top 50 players in MLB. Somehow, Triple Crown leader Ethier is 30th (behind Kemp at 26th) and Matt Holliday at 28. Really? Matt Holliday?
Anyway, Manny still nets 43rd on the list, but that is down 39 slots from last year.
The release is flawed in that it does not say when the ballots were cast.
Like Power Rankings, these types of lists serve no purpose other than to rile folks up. Derek Jeter only fourth? HERESY. Personally, I'm just glad three Dodgers made the cut.
