Top 10 Right Now at SS, 3B

Creating rankings is a very common thing in sports and my belief is that it doesn’t have much relevance and most of the time is just a way to create controversy and generate debates with no constructive purpose, it holds no great meaning, but it’s fun.



The MLB Network is doing their yearly countdown of top 10 players and as they reveal theirs, i’ll reveal the proper rankings.
