2007 2B Rankings

New, 4 comments

There are a lot of very similar producing secondbasemen for fantasy leaguers to choose from. Surprisingly, there were not many who contribute across the four or five fantasy categories. As such, the White Sox' Tadahito Iguchi rates so highly. He ranks highly in AVG and Runs with double digit HRs and SBs and decent RBIs. Sometimes being good at many things is better than excelling at one. Just ask NL batting champ, Freddie Sanchez.

I mentioned Jamey Carroll in a diary yesterday and left him where he showed-up in my NL-only rankings not so much because I believe he is the 6th best choice. I kept him there to give some props to a surprising good season - .300 AVG in 400+ ABs with 84 Runs and 10 SBs.

Jeff Kent is also ranked very low. He is an older player who has no guarantee of not being injury-plagued for another season. I left him so low to demonstrate the risk. However, I'd rank him as high as Ray Durham, whose 2006 production is the what I consider a best-case scenario for Kent in 2007.
