Alex Gordon is looked at my so many prospect websites as the best prospect in all of baseball, and I couldn't agree more. RotoAuthority has Gordon predicted .275 average with 20 HR's 72 RBI's and 15 SB's. I have Gordon predicted around there but at .282 with 21 HR 70 RBI and 12 SB's, still numbers that WILL give Gordon the American League Rookie of the Year award next year, beating out Daisuke who is bound to have a horrid season with all the hype. The Royals, who also have power hitting Billy Butler, have all the pieces necessary to be a power house in a few seasons and Gordon has a huge role in this process. Good Luck Alex!
