  1. If Carl Pavano had his own wrist watch, after shave, or mustache grooming kit, I would buy it.

  2. I wonder why Jason Heyward is not in the top 10?

  3. @Ben Barron: I wondered the same thing, how would Dustin Pedroia be more marketable than Heyward?

  4. @Brett J. Lewis: The only reason that I can think of is the cities where they play. I suppose Boston is a bigger market than the Atl. However When you sell Heyward its not just in the Atlanta market. It’s the entire southeastern region seeing as how we really only have one mlb team (excluding marlins and rays).
