Funny you mention 3B, because I think SS and 3B are a lot closer in depth than most people think. I don't know if I'd say the depth at SS is better than 3B, but the gap has certainly been getting smaller and smaller.

2B is the worst depth position right now, I think. Makes Reyes and Michael Young both more valuable than you might originally think (plus Reyes can fly). I'd make sure both those guys get on the top 10 SS lists, just because they can also play 2b if you need them too.

I think SS and 3B are pretty deep this year, I would be happy with anyone of these ten as my Starter.

1. A-Rod
2. Nomar
3. Tejada
4. Reteria
5. Furcal
6. Jeter
7. Berroa
8. Reyes
9. Kaz Matsui
10. Cabrera

Young's not a SS yet IMO, so he doesn't get ranked as a SS.

as andy said, any would be fine w/ me... but i think u guys are underestimating jeter... as much as i hate him, he's a legit .310+ 15-20 HR, 80 RBI, 20-25 SB lock every year when healthy.

My Top 10
1. A-Rod
2. Nomar
3. Tejada
4. Jeter
5. Reteria
6. Furcal
7. Reyes
8. Kaz
9. Cabrera
10. Berroa

Keeper league, keep 3 out of these 4. First pick in this years draft..
manny (fo sure)
lidge (same)
and then out of....

renteria (love sox but don't want to be a homer)
or
v wells (bad last year, but tons of potential)

from these posts it is obivous renteria is the choice but wells 2003 performance is the only thing that is keeping from being solid on this decision.

thanks

I wouldn't use these posts to make your choice. They are from a year ago. I will give you credit, I did a pretty big double take when only one person listed Rollins. ;-D Here is a better ranking list for this season. I would go with Wells personally.

I actually would take Wells. I've never been a Renteria fan (the only year I owned him was when I stole him late and then he hit .330). I never expected him to do so, and I don't expect him to do so again. If Wells runs in Toronto, you get an added bonus there as well. It's moderately close, but I'd keep Wells. One thing you might want to factor in is the lack of talent at SS, but I'd still keep Wells.
