2B ranking question

Postby sleepyadam702 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 10:32 pm

I know that Gordon Beckham doesnt have 2B eligibility right now, but he is going to be the 2b for the sox. How is everyone ranking him as a 2B

So Dustin Pedroia isn't in tier 2?

I think he's being underdrafted just because he doesn't already have 2B eligbility. People are drafting him like he's playing 3B to me.

He's below that Tier 2 but clearly better than Uggla to me.

He's likely 6-10 in 2B rankings.

I have him 12th behind Zobrist

Utley
Kinsler
Pedroia
Phillips
Hill
Roberts
Cano
Uggla
Kendrick
Lopez
Zobrist
Beckham

I wouldn't question why someone would draft him over Zobrist or Lopez though.

He would be my #10 right now, right after Uggla. I still have him listed as a CI though until I see him play 2B effectively in spring training

The problem won't be whether or not he can effectively play 2B. he's a SS and there is zero doubt imo that he can effectively play the position. The problem will be whether or not Teahan is good enough to play 3B. But Teahan is likely better than any other option they can run out there at 2B. Now if Teahan got hurt in ST then somebody could get screwed if they drafted Beckham as a 2Bman.
