  2. Good rankings. I agree with you about Figgins and I think he could even be a top 10 to 15 2B by the end of the year. He really hit well the last two months of the season. He had a couple of bad months last year and has hit well in the past. I think that he will bounce back and with Smoak and Cust hitting behind him in the lineup he might score a few runs.

  3. Raburn’s performance is largely determined by his level of confidence. I guess we will see how confident he is with a guaranteed starting spot and 2 year deal.

  4. I don’t understand why people seem to think that 2B is deeper than 3B this year. Just comparing your two lists, Prado shows up as the 8th 2B but the 10th 3B.

  5. Alright, he is nothing special and would be in the others group but not to mention Jeff Keppinger at all is not right :O) He hit .288/.351/.393 last season.

  6. It is if you go by almost any projection set.

    The replacement level Z scores for 3B are much lower than 2B in most formats.

  7. Personally, I have at 35th. He can put up above average BA for 2nd basemen. He could easily fall in the plug and play category for 2nd basemen depending on the batting average of your team.

  8. What about Lowrie and Scutaro? Both have 2B eligibility in Yahoo leagues. They may have playing time issues, but Lowrie was pretty solid last year when he played.

  9. No Daniel Murphy or Brad Emaus?

  10. Talent wise, I have them near Keppinger, but PA is going to be the killer the with them. Once the playtime situation become clear, they could move up.

  11. is Raburn starting? i thought he was going to be the weak-side of an OF platoon and utilityman backup. i’d definitely consider drafting him anywhere after the 15th round if he looks likely to get 600 PAs (health permitting).

  12. Prado had 150 less ABs in the 2nd half vs the 1st, as he got hurt. he was on a 115/18/75 pace in the first half, and batted .307 overall. he’s now 27 and the trends are all in the right direction. he’s slipping in a lot of drafts. just saying.

  13. What?!?! Raburn a tier above Beckham? Pass the peace pipe.

    Comment by Pdiddy31 — February 24, 2011 @ 8:42 pm

  14. I am using a composite of 4 projections, they have Beckman and Raburn dead even on BA (0.269 vs 0.270) and SB (5.83 vs 5.65), but HRs are 13.7 vs 17.5. Also Beckman is supposed to put up those numbers 509 PA vs 452 PA.

    I am not ready to project playing time yet, but given the same number of AB, Raburn projects to be the better player.

  15. I have Prado as the 5th best 2nd basemen in projectable talent (HR/PA, BA/PA, SB/PA). I will be looking to pick him up in a few drafts I am in, especially auction.

  16. I have them near the bottom of the last pack.

    Comment by Jeff Zimmerman — February 24, 2011 @ 9:02 pm

  17. Love the Raburn pick. I know Yahoo has him as 2b but ESPN does not.

  18. [...] homers and 38 steals. The steals alone would get him drafted pretty high, probably no lower than Tier 3 of our 2B rankings. CAIRO is a slightly more pessimistic, calling for .273/.346/.400 with ten homers and 19 steals. [...]
