Only 1 guy can be #5 or #6 and so on so don't get too caught up in the number. Like I said my 5th-9th ranked SS are all going to be close in my eyes, I just couldn't rank them all at #5. :-D

This is an interesting position. It seems that if I don't get one of the top couple guys (Reyes, Jeter), then I'll draft the position based on my team's needs. For instance, Bill Hall, Troy Glaus, and maybe even Miguel Tejada to some extent would be great candidates to give elite power production for a SS. Furcal, Young, Ramirez, and Guillen give you that average boost, and Furcal, Ramirez, and Lopez give you real nice steal numbers. It could be a good position to pick and choose what categories you want to emphasize. Overall, it seems to be a deep position to me (according to my league's Yahoo rankings, there were 10 in the top 100 overall this year, with Reyes being #5 and Jeter being #8).

Out of curiosity, what kind of numbers would you project for Tulo next season? I think he could compete for ROY.

Its really hard to predict what a rookie will do in his first year but what I have him down for is something like....

.270
14
65
65
9

Its hard to predict rbi and runs especially since I'm not sure where he will hit in the order so I kinda just threw out some #'s there.....

Guillen is WAY too low.

Lopez outranked both Lugo and Renteria in both 2005 and 2006, so I don't think it makes sense to expect him to be below them in 2007.

He'll hit either 7th or 8th I'd wager. But hard to know what might happen between now and the start of the season.

It appears Phillips will be the Reds SS next year. Where does he rank?

If he is at SS, does that mean Freel goes back to 2B? Is this the year that Freel finally gets past 500AB. 8-o

sorry to hijack.

Not sure if Freel would return to 2B. There has been talk of Harris being the everyday 2B or Aurilla splitting time there if he is resigned. Right now, I think Freel is the best option in RF for the Reds since Denorfia looked completely overmatched in regular ABs.
