  5. SB projections: My updated top 10

    Eric Karabell

    Nobody should be terribly surprised that San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera is running wild, because this is what he did last season. Cabrera led the National League -- and all middle infielders -- in stolen bases last season, and all of baseb...

  9. My 'Do Not Draft' list: Posey, Bourn ...

    Eric Karabell

    San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is the consensus top guy at his position this season, a point I have no intention of arguing. Posey has proven himself to be a terrific, accomplished hitter -- and healer of injury -- and his performance in t...
