Not bad, but Reyes has no 2B eligibility next year which makes 2B even thinner. I think Cano could bump up a few. He's going to have a big year. I'd bump Weeks down too. He hasn't proven anything yet to be... oh wait, it's 2B, nevermind.

No problem. Not much input, but I hope it helps. I'd input more but I don't usually do rankings until January.

I like the first list better with Cantu and Weeks above Cano.
Iguchi and Lugo are too low.

At just a glance...

Biggio is entirely too low. Seems like you threw him down there without really looking at his numbers compared to his position-mates. I have him ranked Top 10 for 2006, right now.

I like Giles over Roberts, but I seem to be in the minority on that front.

Barmes is ranked entirely too high (over Felipe Lopez, Craig Biggio, and Placido Polanco... I don't think so).

I have Polanco ranked considerably higher.

I think Cano goes on top of Weeks and even Cantu in redraft.

Kaz Matsui needs to be dead last B-)

Show Orlando Hudson a little more love.

Cano wouldnt be drafted in front of Weeks if I had to take one or the other. I see Weeks having a pretty good year next year now that his hand is fixed.

gota show biggio more love than that. a .260 average isn't terrible, but with 26 dingers, 69 rbis, and 96 runs, he has pretty good power from your 2b hole. from what i remember he was a pretty streaky player this year which wasnt good to see, but he's proven for years he can get it done. if it isnt a keeper league id draft him probably right after figgins.

The onyl thing I think you guys ar emissing is the fact that Cantu hit 28 HRs, had 117 RBI and .286 average, I would have him ranked top 5, and no less. CANO WILL POST MUCH MORE PEDESTRIAN NUMBERS THIS YEAR, GUARANTEED.

Edit: Cantu is also only 23 years old!
