The Fantasy Man's 2009 Second Base 2B Mixed League Rankings

Chase Utley - Will be a bargain on draft day because of surgery, should be ready for opening day, you can get him in R2.
Ian Kinsler - What's his ceiling? If he can duplicate 2008, he's first round material
Dustin Pedroia - .300+/15/15 with .300+/20/20 potential
Brandon Phillips - The BA is bad but still a lock for 20/20/90

Brian Roberts - Super consistent and can expect .290+/30+ SB
Alexei Ramirez - Has a BJ Upton build without the K's, who knows what his ceiling is!!
Dan Uggla - BA is a killer but 25+ HR/100+ Runs is fantastic at 2B!

Robinson Cano - Has .300+/20/90 potential if he can put it all together for an entire year
Howie Kendrick - .330+/15/80 potential if he can stay healthy
Rickie Weeks - Don't believe the hype, BA will kill your fantasy season but he does have 30/30 potential...maybe
Kelly Johnson - Still waiting for KJ to break out, does a little bit of everything but suffers monster slumps
Placido Polanco - .300+ with a few dingers and a few steals, super consistent, won't hurt you

Mark DeRosa - Consistent .290/15-20HR kind of player with position eligibility
Jose Lopez - Showed he can hit consistently, still young, still has the potential for a break out
Felipe Lopez - Hasn't lived up to hype, new home in Arizona as an everyday player, has .280/15/25 potential
Blake DeWitt - Potential for .280/15/80 with room to grow, super young, bumps last year turn into success this year
Alexi Casilla - .300+ slap hitter with 100R potential
Orlando Hudson - .290+/15/70/15 as usual if he stays healthy

Freddie Sanchez - Can be a .300+ hitter but lacks power and a team
Akinori Iwamura - No power but could be a .300+ hitter
Emilio Bonifacio - Has 40+ SB potential, no power
Kaz Matsui - If healthy, has .300+/20 SB potential
Aaron Hill - There is sleeper potential here if he's healthy, has 20+ HR potentialEdgar V. Gonzalez - Has .290+ ability with a few dingers if he gets a chance
Luis Castillo - .300+ but legs are bad and probably won't plays 7 days a week
Aaron Miles - Has .300+ potential but not much power
Mark Ellis - 20/20 potential if he stays healthy and away from the monster slump
Mark Grudzielanek - Can hit .300 but he's getting old
David Eckstein - Solid player in real life but he doesn't cut it in fantasy
Ronnie Belliard - Just a back up who ocassionally gets super hotAsdrubal Cabrera - Will play if Josh Barfield doesn't beat him out

Sean Rodriguez, 2B, LAA - Was a solid hitter in the minors but not much room for him yet
