Ken Rosenthal Needs New Sources

I checked out Ken Rosenthal's latest "Inside Dish" and found something rather amusing. It's concerning Magglio Ordonez wanting to improve on the Garrett Anderson deal.

...Ordonez is in a different position than Anderson, whom one scout says "might be the best player in the A.L.".

I had to read that a couple times before fully comprehending that. Garret Anderson best player in the AL? Now, I understand the current obsession with GA: he's a nice player, and has been underrated for sometime. These days he falls into the "so many people say he's underrated he's overrated." Best player in the AL though? Come on now; he's not the best player on the Angels. He may well be third. He certainly isn't the best OF in the AL, that would be Carlos Beltran. The same Carlos Beltran that everyone at USS Mariner is urging the M's to go after. I'd love to see it, but I can't imagine Seattle pursuing a Scott Boras player.
