ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT: SI.com's Ton Verducci examined the list of MLB's top-selling jerseys for '10 and noted "only two of the top 20 replicas are for players with West Coast teams" -- Giants P Tim Lincecum at No. 10 and C Buster Posey at No. 19. The Yankees, Red Sox and Phillies "account for half of the top 18 jerseys." Verducci: "I'll repeat what I've been saying: baseball is a top-heavy game.
