2009 Positional Rankings (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS and OF posted)

Postby ironman » Thu Feb 05, 2009 11:26 pm

Hello. Once again I'm going to be posting my positional rankings for all to use. I've been slow getting them put together this year, so I'm going to release a position every couple of days. Once they're all up I'll get all the lists put together on one page.

You can view the rankings at my new blog Pomp Culture (formerly Thunder Matt's Saloon).

Catcher
First Base
Second Base
Third Base
Shortstop
Outfield

I'll keep you posted when new lists are ready. And please feel free to discuss the rankings, either here or in the post comments.

Good luck and happy drafting in 2009. ;-D

I forgot to mention. I'm going by Yahoo's guidelines for positional eligibility. Just a FYI for those that may play on other sites.

With Inge moving back to 3B I expect he'll put up numbers like he did between '05 and '07. His average will kill you but he should be good for 15+ HR's and 140 combined R/RBI's with a few SB's. That's more than most of the catchers ranked 10+.

I don't believe in Ramon Hernandez. He's moving to the NL which will help but I think everyone is exaggerating how much of a benefit he'll get from GABP. Camden isn't as good of a hitters park but it still favors hitters. Inge for instance has a good chance of outproducing him imo.

Salty and Shoppach should move up. the only thing holding them down is uncertain playing time.

Exactly. Once things get a little more clear in Spring Training with how much PT they'll get I imagine they'll creep up the rankings. This is just the first draft. There'll be updates all the way to the end of March.

Nice list overall, few minor things I dont like but nothing that will shake it up, so no sense in complaining ;-D

Thanks, and with any rankings, they're merely used as a guide. In the end when draft day comes and you're looking at a player ranked 14th and one ranked 17th, if you think 17th is the better pick you should go with your gut on it. Not saying you'll be right or I'll be right, but at least you're making the decision you think is best.
