The Fantasy Man's 2012 Fantasy Baseball Second Base 2B Rankings

The Fantasy Man's 2012 Fantasy Baseball Second Base 2B Rankings
UPDATED 3/13/12

1. Robinson Cano - No brainer top 2B, top 5 overall IMO, I think he can steal 10+SB
2. Ian Kinsler - 30/30 again in mid prime
3. Dustin Pedroia - 20/20/.300+ super solid pick
4. Chase Utley - Has #1 2B fantasy talent so this could be a nice value if healthy
5. Ben Zobrist - He's a bit inconsistent week by week but numbers are there at the end
6. Brandon Phillips - the rare 5 category 2B, but which category will thrive this year?
7. Dan Uggla - Big power, stinky BA, decent OBP
8. Rickie Weeks - Had his best year yet the final numbers weren't too exciting
9. Howie Kendrick - Position eligibility, entering prime, possible breakout, must stay healthy
10. Dustin Ackley - the next Chase Utley, just needs a supporting cast
11. Danny Espinoza - 20/20 potential but super inconsistent in 2011, I like the upside
12. Neil Walker - Power/speed a bit disappointing in '11 but a full season and a half under belt
13. Jemille Weeks - Could be boom or bust, BA should dip a bit but speed is real
14. Jason Kipnis - small sample shows power/speed, I can't go crazy here
15. Daniel Murphy - Could be top 10 2B by end of 2012 if healthy, 1B/2B/3B eligible
16. Gordon Beckham - Seen talent, must put it together, new coach should help
17. Kelly Johnson - Nice power, few SB's, the rest blows
18. Aaron Hill - Lost power, added 20+ SB in 2011, the rest blows
19. Brian Roberts - Assuming healthy, gets you .280/10-15HR/85+R/25+ SB, nice value
20. Marco Scutaro - Could lead off in COL, possible boost in power, nice value
21. Sean Rodriguez - May be the starting SS, position eligibility, nice power/speed upside
22. Alexi Casilla - Could hit .280/20+SB with full-time AB
23. Ryan Raburn - Full-time AB could create nice upside
24. Darwin Barney - Nice serviceable player
25. Jose Altuve - Good contact hitter, 15+ SB speed, 5-10 HR
26. Johnny Giavotella - Like Altuve with slightly less speed
27. Omar Infante - Can hit for a decent BA but has no power
28. Mark Ellis - If healthy could be 15/15 serviceable, likely low BA
29. Freddie Sanchez - Serviceable
30. Orlando Hudson - Serviceable
31. Skip Schumaker - Serviceable
32. Ramon Santiago - Save for the waiver wire
