Baseball America's Top 100 Prospects: My Main Man Iggy...

It's no secret, everyone knows I've got a man crush on Jose "Iggy" Iglesias.  The hands of a mongoose and the makeup of a really well-rounded ballplayer.  I think half of London already knows that I'm all sorts of infatuated with the 20 year old Cuban.

So while I'm a little upset he's only checking in at #52 on Baseball America's list of the Top 100 prospects, I'm convinced it's because most people haven't seen this stud live and in person.

I liked him prior to last year's Spring Training....but after reading more about him, and meeting him in Ft quickly turned into a case of baseball man love (see Jacoby Ellsbury in early 2007, right before the pink hats and eventual injuries got to him).

A-rod is apparently trying to move in Iggy too...he better recognize.   "It's a Miami thing"....easy pal.

Either way, Iggy is Boston's top rated prospect, but you can also find Anthony Ranaudo (#67) and left-hander Drake Britton (#97) on the list. 

Not that I care, but look at who checks in at #37 and #75....
