And it's a valid point. Although it's more more true in traditional roto leagues that have CI, MI, and 5 OF spots. The idea behind it is that the replacement players at each position are generally just as good (or bad) as one another. The only real exception is catcher since the 25th best catcher is usually either really, really horrible at hitting, or doesn't get many at-bats.
Well if you're going to make that argument, why talk about Hanley and not someone like Reyes, Rollins, or Phillips? Hanley's "lackluster" 2010 was a lot like Kemp's 2009 (minus 25 RBI), and Kemp was a top 7 pick coming into this year.
