Can we use the viz as a graphic? It shows just how far Pujols' dot is away from the rest of the field.

1 Albert Pujols  $40 STL *
2 Prince Fielder  $34 MIL
3 Mark Teixeira  $34 NYY *
4 Miguel Cabrera  $33 DET
5 Ryan Howard  $33 PHI
6 Mark Reynolds  $30 ARI
7 Justin Morneau  $26 MIN *
8 Adrian Gonzalez  $26 SD
9 Victor Martinez  $26 BOS *
10 Kevin Youkilis  $25 BOS

2. Top 5 27 years olds at First

Lead in with Miguel Cabrera's quiting drinking after his embarrasing SNAFU late last year. Emack will hit on each of the top three.

1. Miguel Cabrera, DET *
2. Mark Reynolds, ARI *
3. Adrian Gonzalez, SD *
4. Kendry Morales, LAA
5. Joey Votto, CIN

3. Emack's sleepers in the second 10

The No. 4 and 5 27-year-olds lie in this next 10...

11 Kendry Morales  $18 ANA
12 Pablo Sandoval  $18 SF *
13 Joey Votto  $16 CIN 
14 Lance Berkman  $15 HOU ... psuedo contract year
15 Adam Dunn  $14 WAS
16 Derrek Lee  $12 CHC ... contract year
17 Carlos Pena  $9 TB ... contract year
18 Billy Butler  $9 KC ... Breakout candidate to enter top tier.
19 Michael Cuddyer  $5 MIN
20 James Loney  $4 LA

4. Emack's sleepers in the third 10

That second 20 had some of the younger emerging players. This 20-30 tends to be some veterans, are these guys washed up?

21 Garrett Jones  $2 PIT
22 Todd Helton  $1 COL *
23 Jorge Cantu  $1 FLA
24 Adam LaRoche  $1 ARI
25 Nick Swisher  $1 NYY
26 Nick Johnson  $1 NYY
27 Paul Konerko  $1 CHW *
28 Chris Davis  $1 TEX ... Emack's man crush ... Crush Davis.
29 Garrett Atkins  $1 BAL
30 Martin Prado  ATL

Out.

Emack.
