The 2010 Preseason Latino Player Rankings and All-Star Team


Hanley ramirez.jpg“Never make predictions, especially about the future.”

 

That was one of the most famous quotes ever from Casey Stengel.

 

Nobody listens to him. Not these days. Spring training is right around the corner on the calendar, and predictions are starting to pop up all over again.

 

Baseball is back.

 

No matter if you are a casual or serious fan or into fantasy baseball, everyone is looking for every opinion of what will happen in 2010.

 

There is a long way to go, but my preseason crystal ball says it will be the world champion New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies again in the Fall Classic.

 

As far as the majors’ Latino players, watch Florida Marlin Hanley Ramirez go for his first National League MVP award. Same as Ramirez, watch out in the junior circuit for former Marlin and nowadays Detroit Tiger Miguel Cabrera to be again on the move for his first American League MVP.

 

I should not make predictions, but I have a vision Seattle Mariner Felix Hernandez will be again a strong candidate for the American League Cy Young Award and young hurler Neftali Feliz of the Texas Rangers for American League Rookie of the Year.

 

Fans all over the baseball world love rankings, and this is my preseason Latino player rankings, in which I list the best 15 offensive players and best 15 pitchers who should be of impact for the 2010 season.
