Shortstop Rankings

Time to rank the shortstops for 12-team mixed leagues (assuming the normal 14 hitters).  Though I typically use 20 games for eligibility, I am including Alexei Ramirez here since he'll qualify shortly into the '09 season.  Felipe Lopez missed the cut by seven games and his not expected to play shortstop; he'd rank 13th.  Draft round in parentheses.

  1. Hanley Ramirez - $40.33 (1)
  2. Jose Reyes - $40.15 (1)
  3. Jimmy Rollins - $27.72 (1)
  4. Alexei Ramirez - $17.27 (5)
  5. Rafael Furcal - $15.99 (6)
  6. Derek Jeter - $13.27 (9)
  7. Troy Tulowitzki - $11.95 (9)
  8. J.J. Hardy - $11.86 (10)
  9. Jhonny Peralta - $11.80 (9)
  10. Michael Young - $10.53 (7)
  11. Miguel Tejada - $9.74 (10)
  12. Stephen Drew - $8.67 (8)
  13. Orlando Cabrera - $6.03 (14)
  14. Mike Aviles - $5.77 (13)
  15. Edgar Renteria - $4.32 (23)
  16. Ryan Theriot - $3.98 (16)
  17. Yunel Escobar - $3.34 (16)
  18. Cristian Guzman - $2.40 (25)
  19. Asdrubal Cabrera - $2.39 (28)
  20. Khalil Greene - $1.00 (19)
  21. Jed Lowrie - $0.40 (23)
  22. Jason Bartlett - $0.36 (21)

Jerry Hairston Jr. and Brandon Wood are two who would become interesting with more playing time.

Since we last discussed Drew, I've refined by dollar value while holding his ranking in a similar spot.  I know finite24 is a big Drew believer; here's his case.

As you can see, no one can hold a handle to Hanley or Reyes.  If you have a shot at one, you have to take it.
