I agree, the SS pos is shallow, therefore sending ARod's value through the roof. But as Beltran continues on pace for 50 steals this season, it is hard to let a 40+ HR/50 SB guy slip out of the number one spot, regardless of position. I think Vlad falls behind these guys because of his position and lack of stolen bases...his numbers will be similar to Beltran's minus the SB's.
