Fine as far as I know. He is a fielder so I don't expect him to have any issues with the recovery also. He doesn't have much of a competition at 2B right now.

The only high-level player mentioned as below where he should be is Carl Crawford. Any more out there?

Sizemore I have around 15th. Abreu seems low at 34.

Bill Hall at 65 is a bargain with SS eligibility plus 3rd and OF if you need him there. I don't see a major fallout from last year and if I'm right only Glaus will give you better power at the position, but Hall won't kill you on average. If he improves this year (he is 27) he's Soriano without the stolen bases.

I like Hall a lot but I wouldn't go that far. I don't see him getting the HR's that Soriano has, and depending on where fonzo hits in the order, I"m not srue if I see him getting the RBIs. And if Soriano hits lead off, RBI's could be close, but fonzo will get more runs.

So yes, Hall is good, but no, he is not Soriano w/o the SB's.

Yeah, maybe not, that was kind of best case scenario. But, #65 is way too low for a SS who hit over 30 dingers last year and is just now entering his prime. I could maybe see 50-60 in a keeper league where he might not keep that SS eligibility but in a redraft he deserves to be one of the first shortstops drafted.
