As for Lopez, I'm not a fan at all of his. He only has one year of big SB so its hard to really predict how many he'll have, he could have 25, he could have 40+ who knows. His power completely disappeared when he moved stadiums and his power sort of came out of nowhere to begin with, again he could have as few as 8 or 9 HR's or as many as 20 HR. Then add in the fact that the lineup could be really ugly since other than Zimmerman the only hitters they have are either unproven or injury prone and I see a lot more risk than value in him.
Having said that at 2B I'd list Lopez as my #7 2B but he isn't much higher than the 15th, they are all bunched up. Sanchez is would be my #9 but again their value to me is almost the same. Unless one of the top 5 or so at 2B falls farther than I expect I will likely just pick whats left in the late rounds at 2B, the bottom end of position is just way too close in value to me.
I get the impression that when a team isn't very good offensively, like the Nationals, the manager feels like he needs to make things happen. A big part of that is running guys. I think Lopez will steal a lot as they try and "manufacture" runs. If he hits 10 HR with a solid average, you have Chone Figgins.
