He'll have 2B,SS,OF eligibility regardless and have more value as a 2B.

I'll spew out a list in a little bit.

I'd put him way behind Hanley/Reyes/Rollins. I think I'd rank him before Young/Tejada/Peralta only because they have the same value but you'll get Ramirez a couple rounds later. I don't think he'll hold a candle next to the top 3 next year though.

I don't agree that his value will be at 2nd. Second is much deeper than short.

Ramirez, Rollins, Reyes will still be the big three next season. I'd probably lump him in with the group behind Tejada, Tulowitzki, and Young; Peralta, Jeter, Hardy, Ramirez.

Yeah, I thought about that a little bit after I posted. Just a force of habit I guess.

Don't forget Upton loses his 2B next year.

I think having both adds to the value more then just a little. I look at it and think I take him then don't have to worry about position for my second MI. Heck, thanks to injuries (and a stupid trade) Im actually starting him in the outfield these days (Im in a real deep league and am actually starting 4 MIs this week, Lowrie at 3B, Arias at 2B, Aviles at SS, Alexei at OF3)

Yikes, he's going a lot earlier than most anticipated and it's only January.

I have a feeling that a lot of you will be very disappointed in 09.

59th on the MDP thread. 49th in the slow mock draft we're doing at couchmanagers. He has some interesting upside in HR/SB's with multi-position eligibility that comes with quite a bit of downside. I likely won't own him this year if this is any indication.
