Last week we pointed you towards SI's top 20 Young Pitchers which included Bretty Myers at 14th and this week we point you toward the top 20 Young Hitters. You should all know by now how I feel about J-Roll, so it is nice to see the guy get some credit for his bat.
10. Jimmy Rollins, SS, 26
His glovework is so dazzling, anything he does on offense should be considered gravy. Rollins had a career season in 2004, posting an .803 OPS while stealing 30 bases in 39 attempts. He's off to a slow start this year along with the rest of his Phillies teammates, however.

About NBC internships
Can't say we're super familiar with the work of Don La Greca, whose bio says he's a co-host on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's either a total joy to listen to or absolutely a chainsaw to your ears.
One or the other, tough to say.
But it's hard to argue with the impressiveness of the rant he went on regarding the New York Giants offensive line the other day.
The stats he quotes are just hard to argue with in any capacity.
Regardless of how you feel about advanced stats, I thinkk we can all agree the Eagles D-Line is gonna go all Pythagoras on the Eli this weekend.
