After a few Yahoo drafts its seems like there isnt any position scarcity.
While some positions like Catcher, 2B, and SS are still thin in power number players, there are many good players available in these positions. Even some of the traditional thin positions seem to have gotten better.
This position is still thin, but it has gotten better with more talent. Gone are the days of Piazza, Posada, Pudge, and then the rest. Catcher is pretty deep now. We have:
Victor Martinez, Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, Javy Lopez,
Jorge Posada, Mike Piazza, Jason Varitek, Mike Lieberthal, and even Ramon Hernandez all able to post great to good power numbers.
Then the rest...
They may not post a lot of HRs, but they can still post good numbers in 3 other areas. Pual Lo Duca, A.J. Pierzynski, Johnny Estrada, Micheal Barret, and Jason Kendal can post good rbi and/or runs with a great BA to boot.
The same goes for 2B. After Soriano, Kent, and Boone there is still plenty of talent to go around. We have Uribe and Ginter. Both seem to be capable of posting good 2B numbers. Then there's Loretta, Bellhorn, and Vidro. Even Edgardo Alfonzo posted good rbi and BA numbers last year. Then we have speedsters like Freel, Figgins, (both can play multiple positions) Brian Roberts and others. So even if you cant get good power numbers from 2B, you can still get good runs, average, and stolen base production.
Shortstop is the deepest of all. After the top 4 (Tejeda, Jeter, Garciaparra, and C. Guillen), we have a slew of good average, base stealers available. We dont have to take our chances with a SS that posts a 240 BA anymore. We have Rollins, Furcal, Renteria (top 4?), Young (power), O. Cabrerra, Reyes, Matsui, Lugo, Feliz, Vizquel, and Izturis. All of which can post decent numbers or steal bases for a shortstop.
In all cases there are a couple of decent options still available on the free agent list. Khalil Greene is available in one of my leagues. Vizquel in another. Pierznski, Bellhorn and Vidro are available in yet another league.
It looks like this year we wont have to worry about being cut off of one of these traditionally thin positions. Which means you can no longer force a team to use up one of their middle rounds grabbing a SS, 2B, or C for fear of being left with nothing.
I love mock drafts.
