Who is Dustin Ackley?

The baseball world has been abuzz about the flamethrowing hurler from San Diego State named Stephen Strasburg, who is a sure bet to go #1 in this year's baseball draft (to the Nats). Some have called Strasburg the best prospect ever (did we hear that about Mark Prior?), and he has great stuff -- a fastball that can eclipse 100 miles per hour and that stays in the upper 90's late in the game. And, yes, the ball moves.

That's great, good for the Nats, who have some promising starters in their organization, but then the question remains -- who will get drafted second? You can read this piece in SI.com to learn about UNC second baseman Dustin Ackley, who, in other pieces, gets compared to Chase Utley. Ackley is drawing high marks, and could well follow Strasburg in this year's draft.
