    Bubba or Bobby. Probably Bobby.
    Crosby can steal, hit, play defense.
    He has raw power that has yet to develop and would be a Derrek-Lee type hitter if he can work his way into the 3rd spot.

        Beats me. I can't take these predictions too seriously, but this one might be out of control.

        At least pick Peralta, who had to combo of 141 games and a (quite)good-hitting season. He hit 3rd tonight.

        JM: Only did that for a couple of years and then we had a conspiracy so it kind of turned me sour. Our league's commissioner, Lew Ford(notes) at the time, was doing some shady things that ... I'd rather not talk about [laughs].
        DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
        JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].

          I was wondering the same thing. Sure he has potential, but there are a a couple of young SS that have flashed more than him in the past couple years, so I don't understand why all the fascination with Crosby instead of someone like Peralta. Crosby strikes out too much, his speed isn't that great, and he hasn't hit for average yet. Crosby might break out this year, but he has a long way to go before being an MVP candidate, and I just don't see that kind of jump possible from what he's already shown.

            It seems like they are picking Crosby because of his " potential ". If that's the case, players like Ryan Howard, Jhonny Perelta, david wright, and miguel cabrera, are MUCH better " potential " picks. Crosby really hasn't done anything YET to make people believe he'll have an MVP caliber season.

              sydney crosby is pretty good but i think alexander olvechkin will win the rookie of the year and will be mvp when they put a better team around him in the future...oh, sorry, wrong sport!

                I agree, these experts " predictions " can't be taken too seriously. Lastyear's picks by the so-called " experts " were way off.

                Rob Neyer was the ONLY one lastyear that predicted the whitesox would make the playoff's.

                  He's cut down on his K's a lot from '04 to '05 and his avg is getting better. If he can stay healthy, he'll put up 30HR and 110RBI while hitting .295.

                    He " cutdown " on his k's because he only played 84 games lastyear compared to 151 in 2004.

                      He had 54 strikeouts in 84 games. That's roughly 100 strikeouts over a full season, which would be around 40 less than his 2004 totals.

                        I agree, it's a big step for Crosby to be an MVP-type player, and he's not exactly a kid.
                        I think that David Wright is an excellent potential MVP candidate...he was great last year, and is younger than Crosby and Howard. How does this guy play in NYC and not get tons of press? Pedro's special toe shoe is headline news while Wright could probably hit 3HR in a game and barely get a mention...

                          Alright, yes, he did cut down on his K'S some. That still doesn't make me believe he'll be able to produce an MVP caliber season this year.

                            Crosby was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2004 I do believe...

                            How is that not doing anything YET?

                              Him winning the ROY doesn't tell me much.

                              Todd hollandsworth won the ROY, and look what happened to him...
