Young Guns

I've been trying to collect some young talent to fix the problems with my APBA baseball team. If you can believe Keith Law's list of the top 25 players under age 25, I'm making progress.

  • #2: Bryce Harper
  • #3: Manny Machado
  • #8: Xander Bogaerts
  • #10: Wil Myers
  • #11: Michael Wacha
  • #12: Gregory Polanco
  • #20: Kolten Wong
  • #21: Shelby Miller
  • #24: Carlos Martinez
  • #25: Kevin Gausman

    Four of the top 10 (and half of the top 12!); ten of the top 25. I can work with that.

    I hope.

    (Sadly, Adam Wainwright is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon. This is going to leave a big hole in the rotation next year. And it is currently leaving a big hole in the Cardinals rotation. *sigh*)
