A collection of interesting stuff

Several items I've run across that I wanted to throw out there...

Scott Lucas is starting a series called "unknown pleasures", focusing on Rangers hitters who came out of nowhere to contribute in a season, and has #16-20 of the series up. Several blasts from the pasts in there, including a couple of guys that I didn't remember hitting as well as they did in their stints...

Rotoworld has their A.L. West top 10 prospects up...no real surprises there. Danks-Volquez-Diamond are one thru three, although Rupe is at #6, about as high as I've seen him ranked...

BP follows up their Top 50 Prospect List from yesterday with an explanation of the methodology they used in compiling their rankings, and a chat session with Rany Jazayerli, one of the major contributors to the list.

Joel Sherman has a feature today on one of the best players in baseball, one that he admits is probably the "only completely positive column" about this player one is likely to read...

And someone named Emily Badger has a feature on where John Rocker is now...
