Shortstop Rankings

Today let's rank shortstops, using AVG, HR, RBI, R, and SB.  This is for 12-team mixed leagues employing 14 hitters and 9 pitchers (including one 2B, one SS, and an MI).

  1. Hanley Ramirez (1) - $28.88
  2. Jose Reyes (2) - $23.86
  3. Jimmy Rollins (2) - $18.81
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (2) - $17.28
  5. Derek Jeter (4) - $13.38
  6. Asdrubal Cabrera (13) - $10.88
  7. Everth Cabrera (21) - $8.41 
  8. Elvis Andrus (13) - $8.21
  9. Alexei Ramirez (10) - $7.75
  10. Miguel Tejada (12) - $6.86
  11. Erick Aybar (17) - $6.59
  12. Alcides Escobar (23) - $6.49
  13. Jason Bartlett (9) - $5.06
  14. Yunel Escobar (13) - $4.62
  15. Orlando Cabrera (16) - $3.15
  16. Rafael Furcal (12) - $2.06
  17. Stephen Drew (10) - $1.75
  18. Marco Scutaro (18) - $1.50
  19. Ryan Theriot (23) - $1.00
  20. Jhonny Peralta (18) - $0.16
  21. J.J. Hardy (23) - $0.14

The Big Three has officially become the Big Four, as Tulo is firmly in the mix with Reyes and Rollins.  Hanley continues to stand alone.  Reyes is riskier than Rollins given last year's hamstring surgery.  Rollins had an off-year too, but at least stayed healthy.  Given his 2009, I can see why folks are taking Tulo over Reyes and Rollins.

Asdrubal Cabrera is an intriguing 13th round choice.  A June shoulder injury kept his ABs down, but if he's healthy he should get 600.  That could mean something like .292-10-76-97-19. 

Everth Cabrera, Andrus, and Escobar are similar to me - guys who could steal 30-40 and score 80+ runs.  I wouldn't overextend for Andrus, who goes much earlier than the other two.  Alexei fits the power/speed bill, while most others offer only one of those traits.  Bartlett and Drew are a couple of 9th-10th round choices that don't thrill me.
