That being said, the position is as deep as it's ever been... maybe even deeper, the athletes just don't possess "star-power."
Guys such as Jimmy Rollins, Julio Lugo, David Eckstein, Clint Barmes, Bobby Crosby, Khalil Greene, and my personal fave'... Jhonny Peralta (doesn't he realize that he spells his name wrong) flesh-out the position; a position that goes maybe 20 deep.
Ryan did a solid job bustin' JJ down to his very roots... and Hardy is indeed a very solid sleeper. I'll toss another one out there- 21 year-old Dodger Brandon Wood. Wood's been scorching hot, and the dude positively tore UP Rancho Cuca Monga to the tune of .323/43/115, with 51 Doubles and 4 Triples
. Of 536 ABs, 1 of every 5 were for extra bases, and given that... Wood's SLG % was a pulverizing .672!
The kid will most likely start the year in the minors... but could quickly be elevated to the Bigs' if he maintains such a torrid pace.
All of this will, of course, be included in part III of my positional analyses; "Fantasy Baseball's Shortstops."
