He shouldn't be, but he shouldn't have been this year either.
Hanley wasn't a first rounder this season and Reyes was for a reason. Going into this years drafts it was possible last season was somewhat of a fluke for Hanley while Reyes had put up back to back 60+ steal seasons and was improving across the board. Assuming Hanley keeps doing in the 2nd half what he has done in the 1st then the questions cease and he is a guaranteed first round pick.
Between Reyes, Hanley, Rollins, Jeter, Guillen, Tejada, Furcal, Young and a host of others shortstop has become a pretty deep position. Hanley will still be a first rounder though and most likely so will Reyes. I'd assume Rollins will be a second rounder next year but everybody's position can change dramatically over the course of the 2nd half of this season.
