College sports have all kinds of "All Whatever" lists...preseason all-conference, all-Americans, All-defense and everything else you can imagine. Professional leagues haven't messed with these lists, they provide All-Stars and that is about it. I'm changing that today, how about a preseason All American League Central list? In order to come up with my list, I used information from two websites, Fangraphs and MLB Depth Charts. Fangraphs was used for their projected WAR for the 2010 season and MLB Depth Charts for the projected depth charts for the five teams in the AL Central.
The Royals end up with one first teamer and his manager had this to say about him:
I would put Gordon’s name probably at the top of the list," Hillman said. "He’s coming off major surgery. I know he came back last year. I know he’s a great worker and everybody is waiting for him to breakout so to speak. But I’m not going to discount Josh Fields’ ability and count him out of the mix there.
and this gem from Kaegel:
A big year from Gordon doesn't seem as crucial now, however, with slugger Josh Fields and .300 hitter Alberto Callaspo as possible alternatives at third base.
