I was just amazed at the progress he's made. He's coming to get the ball better." * The AL scout had several other scouts rank the shortstops from both Western Divisions. Troy Tulowitzki (Rockies) was first. Here's the AL scout: "I had either Elvis Andrus (Rangers) or Cabrera second. Cabrera's better than (Rafael) Furcal (Dodgers). I have him ahead of Erick Aybar (Angels). He has better instincts and better plate discipline, and he's about three years younger.
