Fantasy Beat: Rankings Review: Shortstop

8

Marc Normandin

Marc reviews his 2010 shortstop rankings.

This is a review of my 2010 shortstop rankings. This time around, not only will we use auction values for mixed leagues, but also the dollar value for AL- and NL-only leagues. These dollar values come from Graphical Player 2011, and I think these will do a good job illustrating how much I missed by on the players I missed, though, broken record style, the why is more important than the result when it comes to these rankings. All PECOTA projections, dollar values and statistics in the parentheses are from 2010.

GM for a Day: San Diego Padres

24

Christina Kahrl

Making some tough choices doesn't have to mean being non-competitive.

So, the Padres came up short, if only just, and the legacy of their big finish in 2009 just heralded a nice surprise and second-place irrelevance in 2010. That's the heartbreak of transient happiness for you, but with a roster stocked with plenty of passing fancies and the clock ticking on most of the club's big-name ballplayers, there are few one-day fixer-uppers more challenging than trying to sort out what to do with the Padres.

Fantasy Beat: Pre-Deadline Trade Roundup Part Deux

0

Marc Normandin

Now with even more pre-deadline trades!

As expected the flurry of trades has continued, and we have more fantasy impact to discuss because of it. Let's dig right in with what's transpired since last we wrote.

Miguel Tejada was sent to the Padres, which doesn’t make fantasy waves but is worthy of a few ripples. This leaves third base open for Josh Bell in Baltimore, and cuts into Chase Headley and Everth Cabrera's playing time in San Diego, though all of those things could be a positive. Bell is hitting .278/.328/.481 for the Triple-A Norfolk Tides and is the third baseman of the future for the O's, so bringing him up to the majors and giving him a chance to show off during this lost season is both good for the Orioles and for fantasy owners in need of some help at third. He's not a sure thing for 2010, but he's someone to keep an eye on or grab in deep leagues where you don't have time to worry about whether he's going to hit right away or not.

Prospectus Hit and Run: Big Gains Afield

8

Jay Jaffe

Checking out which teams have benefited most from increasing their Defensive Efficiency this season.

Defense has been on my mind lately, and not just because I've covered it in the context of my recent So-Called "Year of the Pitcher" investigations. It has been a topic I've followed closely over the past few seasons, particularly in terms of the relationship between teams' year-to-year improvement in the field and their overall success. While clubs' hitting and pitching upswings are often attributed to the work of individuals in our conversational shorthand-the Reds are winning because Joey Votto is having an MVP-caliber season and because Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake have anchored the rotation-defense is rarely mentioned in such a manner; indeed, it often slips under the radar entirely. Nonetheless, the past few seasons have seen some interesting turnarounds anchored by defenses, so the question is which ones have improved and declined the most since last year.

Fantasy Focus: Shortstop Rankings

40

Marc Normandin

Ramirez and Tulowitzki are the cream of this crop, according to our expert.

Moving through the infield, we will look at the shortstop rankings. Shortstop is easily the worst position-the number of one-star players is depressing-but there is plenty of production to be found if you are willing to select it early or spend the auction money on it. As for the previous rankings in the series, check out first basemen, second basemen and third basemen. Now, here are the changes to this year's ranking system:

On the Beat: Midweek Update

10

John Perrotto

The Padres make a run, the Astros name a scapegoat, will Tony La Russa become a free agent, plus news and views from around the game.

Sometimes it is easy to forget the Padres exist. They basically wrote off this season before it started as former owner John Moores, in the midst of selling the team to Jeff Moorad and going through an expensive divorce, lopped $30 million off of last year' s payroll and gave Kevin Towers, the longest-tenured general manager in the major leagues, just $43mllion to build a roster with.
