    2010 was recorded as the Year of the Pitcher. Now the hitters of the league are looking for their turn. Here I will list 25 of the best hitters in the league for the 2011 baseball season and my predicted statistics for them. It is not necessarily a ranking of best to worst and should be taken more for the predictions than the order they are listed in.
