I think it is very close between Rollins and Reyes for 2nd place.

Until the Cabrera trade to detroit, I had hanley as the top SS just like most other people, but I now can't see him being as productive as rollins or reyes this year without cabrera in the lineup. Isn't anyone else thinking along these lines and now rating him 3rd.

I'd be curious about this too, but I think off the merits of last season, he deserves to be taken as a top 5 overall pick and I don't believe his production will trail off dramatically.

1. Reyes -These are - known commodity
2. Hanley - too close.

3. Rollins
4. Jeter - Will go too early.
5. Renteria - I like. Might be who I draft most frequently in '08.
6. Furcal - I'm not touching him, but I think those who do will be delighted
7. Yunel Escobar - I'm all over this kid. I see solid numbers (can repeat the AVG), no power though.
8. Cabrera
9. Tulo - Me not believing + sophomore slump = .270/15/80ish
10. Tejada
11. Guillen - I see a downturn coming

I don't see how Guillen's numbers will decline in 2008. They would have declined if he stayed at short and played there all year again with his bad knees, but with the move to first base, that won't be nearly as much of an issue so he should be fine.
