Found January 12, 2013 on The Southpaw:
After almost a month of delay, it's finally here! The  Southpaw Top 50 Prospect list has arrived. This list is coming over two months later in the off season than last year, but given all of Alex's dealings, it's probably a good thing.

Colby Rasmus: Former Cardinals centerfielder tries his hand at curling

Former St. Louis Cardinals centerfield Colby Rasmus was one of the most scrutinized players in recent memory during his days in St. Louis.  Fans did not understand the kid's laid back attitude and balked at his perceived laziness in centerfield. Now that he is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, Rasmus is evidently doing his best to ingrain himself in Canadian culture. The...
