"What about Placido Polanco of the Detroit Tigers for this list. Gold Glove winner in 2007, highest batting average behind Ichiro and Ordonez, hit .350 with 2 strikes (best in the majors) and first everyday second baseman to play a season without an error. Sounds like a top 50 guy to me."
You just stole my thunder... the comments were even WORSE than the rankings, if that is possible. "Helton not in the Top 50!?!" was my favorite.
Usually when I see this type of post, my first reaction is that either the scoring system is not being considered or the poster is keying off of 1 or 2 unusual rankings (like mlb.com having Kinsler as #3 at 2B, even though everything else looked good). But that is not the case here... these are THE worst rankings I've ever seen.
