Keep an eye on the Brewers
No, today we're looking for the best young infield. Young, and cheap. The infield we're looking for consists of four 21-year-old Rookie of the Year candidates. Of course that infield does not exist. Probably never has, probably never will. But that's the ideal: real cheap, real good. And there are only a few infields that fit that bill. The "winner" of this contest is going to become fairly obvious, but in the meantime let's run through the other candidates.
Just a couple of years ago, the Orange County Angels were supposed to have the best young infielders in the game. A not-so-funny thing happened on the way to the World Series, though: Ex-prospects Dallas McPherson and Casey Kotchman have been passed on the organizational depth chart. Fortunately for the Angels, they've been passed by new (and perhaps better) prospects.
