Shocking. Not so much the notion of Torres being the best center fielder in the majors for 2011 – that’s completely possible – but the fact he’s getting national recognition as that.
Fox Sports ran through what they feel will be the best of the best at each position during the 2011 season and came to the conclusion that Torres will indeed be the premier center fielder in the upcoming campaign.
Granted, the center field position is far from deep and a lot of the elite players you’ve grown accustom to seeing man the position have moved to a corner slot. However, it’s still an incredible and well deserved honor for the gold glove worthy Torres, who’ll hopefully add that piece of hardware to his resume at the conclusion of the upcoming season.
