Preseason Predictions - Part II

Earlier in the week, we asked for your predictions on who will win the AL and NL West.  The results are in... Angels and Dodgers!  As for the East...well, we will get to that later. 

Today, we found a 1953 issue of Baseball's Best in our archive that features the magazine editors' picks for big-league leaders at each position.  Yes, this magazine is autographed by Bobby Shantz...addressed to an old friend of Mitchell & Ness.

The editors chose players  they felt were "most likely to dominate in their respective position in 1953".  Here is what they came up with...

Out of their 11-man roster, six were all stars, three played in the World Series and two took home the title.  Baseball's Best didn't do too bad and now we want to test our own predictions of dominating players for the 2010 season.  A poll from the Mitchell & Ness office resulted in this roster...

1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Chase Utley
3B: Alex Rodriguez
SS: Hanley Ramirez
LF: Carl Crawford
CF: Tori Hunter
RF: Jayson Werth
C: Joe Mauer
SPR: Tim Lincecum
SPL: CC Sabathia
CL: Mariano Rivera
M: Mike Scioscia

Let us know if you agree, disagree and anything in between.  And unlike Baseball's Best who published a disclaimer on their picks... we may just put our predictions to the test come the All-Star break...
