As for this week's pick, congratulations to Jose Iglesias, whose much-hailed defense almost ensures him some semblance of a major league future. The question about Iglesias has always been his bat, but a short stint in the Arizona Fall League (a fairly advanced league for a 19-year-old) has given some observers some hope. Iglesias may not have earned the "shortstop of the future" designation we've heard so much, but there's a reason he's getting all the hype.

Almost half way there, folks. And then we'll be half way to the regular season! Huzzah!
