Top 2B for next year!

Postby lbbaseball14 » Tue Dec 14, 2004 4:27 pm

Who are your top 2B for next year? Does anyone else see these guys going way higher than what they should bc of the shortage at their position?

They will go higher because of the shortage but that's as it should be. Position scarcity directly affects value.

Soriano, Loretta, Giles, Boone, Kent, Vidro, Polanco...

Reyes would be higher but you have to take the injuries into account. Kaz and Utely should be nice cheap sleeper options.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I think the top 2B will once again be Soriano.

You're correct. I wouldn't count on 2b-eligibility for Michael Young for next season. I don't think he played a single game there in 2004, did he?

Correct, Young had no 2b starts last year and will now only be a SS reducing his value a decent amount.

Not that he's a TOP 2B, but what's the thought on Orlando Hudson in TOR? Some nice upside, albeit, inconsistent, to go along with decent #'s.

Thoughts?

i agree with you on boone being below the others you just listed. im not very high on boone either, i think he will continue to slide in the years to come. Where's Rickie Weeks when you need him? ;-)
