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.

Isn't that what they said about him leaving the Yankees?

For 2b Soriano and Utley are #1 and #1a - after them the next 4 or 5 are very close and pretty much interchangeable.

Another guy under the radar: Todd Walker, who is a slock for at least .290/15 if he gets a full-time job and maybe a lot more if he is in the right place. He suddenly learned to hit lefties last year. He is not top 10, but once you are past the first 5 or 6 guys he could be a great value alternative.

Additionally, it seems that everyone has finally realized that Luis Castillo is a piece of crap. Too bad, since drafting him too high would sink at least one team in most every league most every year. I remember that as late as last year some people woudl rate him as top five.

Last year Kent was ranked 3rd on the Cafe positional rankings.

Good to see some of these new rankings. 2B has always been a thorn in my side. Last year saw some new talent start to get developed/entrenched that will make the position much deeper. Should be good bargains to be had in later rounds for those of us paying attention. ;-D

My guess is he starts at 3B and Youk moves to 1B. He's a decent candidate to rebound, given his age and the fact that he's moving from a pitcher's to a hitter's park.
