I like Iguchi, though his constant days off narked me last time out. Interesting to see where Weeks is ranked...maybe he's not such a good sleeper after all. Kent may be underrated- i just looked up his 05 numbers, and they're even better than i thought, whilst the team around him can hardly get worse.

Love the worms-inspired moniker. :-D

Cantu came out of nowhere in my books, but I can understand why you would shy away from Weeks and Cano.

However I think Weeks will be a top5 2nd basemen

1. Soriano
2. Kent
3. Figgins
4. Utley
5. Roberts
6. Giles
7. Lopez
8. Cantu
9. Weeks
10. Loretta

If Soriano leaves TX, he could well drop 2-3 spots.

Very deep position. Two years ago, only 4 2b ranked in the top 100 players. In 2005, 8 did, with several others knocking on the door.

Last year, Kent was being dismissed as useless by many here and Loretta was ranked quite well also. And of course, according to Gleeman over at Rotoworld, he would not want Kent because he plans out keeper leagues 10 years into the future.

I agree. I'd take Giles a close 4th as well I believe. ;-D

Just goes to show how deep the position is, although Polanco's lack of HRs and SBs limits his value. But, I think you can make a credible case for him or Hall or Cano or Iguchi or Ellis (Hudson, too, if he'd ever learn to hit lefties). You have a real sleeper in the fact that Mike Lowell gained 2b eligibility. And then you have guys like Lugo, Reyes, and Barmes, who lost eligibility, but, who knows, may regain it. And then you have guys like Kinsler, Gotay, and Aybar in the wings.
