It’s too bad they don’t take into account defensive stats, if so those rankings would look completely different.

My league does, and you’re right. Bartlett shoots up to #7 for our league’s categories.

yeah, Erick Aybar would be above 11th if defensive stats would be considered in all Fantasy leagues

How the heck can you justify Marco Scutaro at #1.

I would have thought Hanley Ramirez for sure.

Hanley is NO.1, Scutaro comes in at 18.

Strange.

I gotta say, Rotoauthority messed this one up

tejada is playing 3rd, not ss

Triteon

With 158 games as SS in ’09 and none at 3B, to start the season he’s a SS in almost all leagues. At 5 or 10 games (varies by league) at 3B he’ll become 3B/CI eligible.

How is Bartlett so low?

I think Escobar is underrated.

Let’s keep it that way.

Cannon arm and .377 OBP last year–hell yeah Escobar’s underrated…

Wondering what Escobar’s arm has to do with his fantasy ranking?

Admiral Rusty T. Shackleford

Escobar ranked in the top 5 of MLB shortstops in OPS and wOBA last year and has a cannon arm… certainly makes up for his average fielding and tendency towards mental mistakes…

Agree with many, Escobar was clutch, slick fielder, cannon arm, good AVG., and got some out of the park.

5 years 6 months ago

Escobar is the most underrated shortstop in baseball.

BaseballFan0707

Definitely.

For some reason, the announcers on sunday baseball whenever the Braves are nationally televised love to say that he has bad work ethic, something about a disagreement with Bobby Cox. Any proof to this story?

Zobrist is def. elligible. He was my SS last year and this year. I’m stoked to get him and Kinsler in the 6th and 7th rounds in my league this year…Zobie will def. be a bargain at a position where there are not too many stand-outs besided Hanley, Tulo, Rollins, Reyes, and Jeter. I like Barlett as well. Hardy could have a bounce-back year too. But if you can draft Zobrist in the later rounds, I recommend it. Great pick-up.

How is Rollins in front of Tulo, Escobar, and Zobrist? Can someone explain to me why he’s so overrated?

vtadave

I’ll give it a shot – .251 BABIP greatly contributed to the drop in AVG, he’ll hit 20-25 homers, and most of all compared to those guys, he’ll steal a ton of bags. Now this isn’t a lock to happen by any means, but he’s already saying he’s going to run more and is targeting 50 steals.

BaseballFan0707

Hopefully he will run smartly, and not just blindly, though I’m sure he’s not that stupid.

Derek Jeter stealing 30 bases last year is a testament to that. You don’t need blazing speed. You just need decent speed and some knowledge of when to run.

Wait a minute. First of all the title of the article is “Fantasy Baseball Shortstop Rankings” so in most leagues defensive prowess means little. Secondly the fact that HanRam not only being the #1 shortstop but is also a top 3 fantasy player is only valued at $28-$29 is an absolute joke. Obviously the author does not play in any auction leagues, as no league I know of would let HanRam go for less than $40 let alone $30. One good thing about this, although I won’t use this site for my fantasy baseball research, I will certainly send all my league mates here :)

Triteon

I’ll give you a half-point…Zobrist should be SS eligible (13 games in ’09).

Despite Adam Everetts massive defensive value, he is sort of an offensive liability. Those rankings are offensively based.
