Manuel’s Manual

Baseball America’s John Manuel posted on Sports Illustrated his top 20 prospects for 2010, with Strasburg at the top.  Here’s the top 20 in short-list form:

1. Strasburg
2. Heyward
3. Stanton
4. Jennings
5. Montero
6. Matusz
7. Alvarez
8. Feliz
9. Posey
10. Bumgarner
11. Santana
12. Smoak
13. D. Brown
14. Kelly
15. Hellickson
16. Drabek
17. Escobar
18. Hicks
19. Ackley
20. Perez

I was surprised at Alcides Escobar at 17–he’s basically a high batting average guy with mild power–but someone told me his defense is supposed to be that good.  Here’s hoping we get to see Ozzie Smith redux.
