Also, Figgins is slated to play 3B this year, so beware leagues which mandate you to draft based on pre-season expected starting positions (my big money league doesn't take into account the silly Yahoo! eligibility quirks). Finally, home or away, splits or no splits, I wouldn't put Soriano any lower than 2nd on this list. A 30-30 threat with potential for over 100 runs and 100 RBI every year for five years or so. Also, as good as Utley was last year, he still has only done it once! Just proceed with caution and remember that pitchers may adjust to him this coming year. I would feel shaky drafting him so high... as the top 2B.
My idea for 2B this year is to wait on the position, and draft a 20-20 threat in Weeks in the middle rounds. I'll swallow his low AVG if need be.
Felipe qualifies for both, I think.
Soriano gets NOWHERE near 100/100 playing for the Nationals in RFK. No one on the Nats scored or knocked in more than 80 last year. And, he ain't going to hit 30 dingers. And, last year he could only hit .265 playing half his games in Arlington. This year. look for him to hit close to .250. He's no way close to the second best option at 2B.
And I can't see how Weeks falls that low in any league with non-short bus managers.
