No David Eckstein? Bummer, but not surprising at all. The Padres should sign Felipe Lopez now.

David Eckstein? I don’t believe I’ve ever seen him on a fantasy roster. Even in a San Diego Padres-only league.

I’m surprised Pedrioa is behind Kinsler. Kinsler is great but Pedroia is clearly better in everything except power numbers.
Ah well, glad I don’t worry about fantasy BB….

Kinsler has shown better power, swipes more bases and up until this year has shown the ability to hit for avg. He’s the more valuable pick in most fantasy formats.

Kinsler has never hit for a better average than Pedroia in a season. Honestly, Kinsler’s ability to hit for average has been remarkably inconsistent.

Like Danks said, in real life, Pedroia is probably the better player but Kinsler offers more from a fantasy stand point.

The big thing to take into account is that due to the constant debate over defensive metrics, very few fantasy leagues use defensive metrics at all. Overall, Perdoia’s defense makes him a better second baseman all around than Kinsler, but Kinsler is generally a better offensive shortstop and thus more useful in terms of fantasy leagues.

Kelly Johnson ahead of Martin Prado. That site just lost its credibility.

Yeah, gotta put Prado over Johnson, seeing as how he stole his job and out performed him in every way.

It’s a good thing it say’s fantasy baseball rankings. Because only in Kelly Johnsons dreams is he better than Martin Prado.

How is Gordon Beckham not on this list?

Because he’s ineligible as a 2B until he actually logs enough games there.

Tim already explained that on the RotoAuthority thread.

Doesn’t qualify at 2B, at least using a 20 games played requirement.

Scott sizemore could be a fantasy sleeper.
