2007 Rookie 2Bs

Postby shortsavage » Sun Dec 24, 2006 12:19 am

Promoting my website as usual ;-) , I just wanted to warn you that there aren't going to be many good rookie 2B options in 2007.

Dustin Pedroia could be a respectable middle-tier 2B but that's about it. It's hard to really imagine any other rookie 2B making a fantasy impact next season.

Are you planning on getting many rookie at-bats out of any 2B besides Pedroia in 2007?

I have a hard time believing Dustin Pedroia, one of the most disciplined middle infielders in recent memory, won't finish 2007 with an OBP in the top ten for all major league second-basemen. With no real leadoff hitter on the Red Sox roster and with all the top of the order ABs the now-departed Loretta saw in 2006, I don't see it too farfetched to see Pedroia scoring 85+ times if given the opportunity in front of Drew, Manny, and Ortiz.

Pedroia's MLB stat-line for 2006 is misleading. His BABIP was very low...if he had just a .300 BABIP last year, he would have had an average of .292 and an OBP of .344.

To put it simply, I think he's worth something in '07.

I believe the Red Sox are going to go with a 1-2 of Lugo and Youkilis. Pedroia will probably hit somewhere in the very bottom of the order next year.

He has already been handed the starting spot. He will likely start the year batting ninth. Which means he is going to have Oritz knocking him in.

What he said. Pedroia will almost certainly hit ninth.
