    Default Top 20 of the Next Decade

    http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/insid...ory?id=4740601

    Projecting a new decade of MLB stars
    We look ahead at who will be shining brightest in the big leagues through 2019


    Today, to begin the conversation, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus -- a man well versed in prospects and MLB futures -- looks at the 20 players who will shine the brightest from 2010 through 2019.

    Selections were based on Baseball Prospectus statistical projections such as WARP (wins above replacement player), along with more subjective observations such as scouting reports and general sense of upside. Our focus here is ultimately on decade-long value to a team.

    16. Andrew McCutchen, CF, Pittsburgh Pirates
    2010 Birthday: 24 on Oct. 10

    Not only were the Pirates awful during the past decade, but they were incredibly boring. McCutchen can change at least the latter with his power/speed game, and while his ceiling falls short of MVP level, he could hit 20 bombs and swipe 30 bases annually well into the latter part of the '10s.


    Just missed (in alphabetical order): Pedro Alvarez, Pirates
