We're reaching the end of the winter, and getting warmed up for the season. This week at TOC, we're going to count down the top ten players at each position across the league. Here's the schedule for this week.
Monday: Catcher, First Base
Tuesday: Second Base, Shortstop, Third Base
Wednesday: Left Field, Center Field, Right Field
Thursday: Left-Handed Starter, Right-Handed Starter
Friday: Right-Handed Reliever, Left-Handed Reliever
The fun will kick off today with the top ten catchers in the league, and we'll try to have a companion piece for each one of them as a buffer as well. I figure this is a nice little way to kill some time, inspire discussion, and break the ice going into Spring Training a little bit, don't you?
Over the weekend at TOC, we had a bit of a lull with interesting news. Justin Upton declined a trade to the Mariners, and I broke down what that means for his future. World Baseball Classic rosters started to leak out, and many of the names were impressive. Plus, I took a look at the playoff teams of 2012, and where they stand at this point in the winter when it comes to filling out their rosters.
But remember: positional countdowns begin today, and they'll be going on all week. I hope everyone enjoys them.
Enjoy your offseason, everyone.
