AL East 2nd Baseman

Recommended Posts

Some good young talent at the position with Robinson Cano, Aaron Hill, BJ. Upton, Dustin Pedroia....... Brian Roberts of Baltimore is 29 now.

How would you rank them?

Hitting at every level means jack. So has Andy freakin Phillips and a bunch of other minor leaguers who sucked in the bigs. Hell, Andy even hit his first few months in the bigs just like Pedroia. Pedroia is not bad though esp for a little puss who crys too much. You might be right.

Ellsbury has got to be the most overrated prospect in the game. The guy has no power, and a crap arm.

LOL....Phillips has never hit in the bigs with any exteded AB's. Ellsbury is probably nothing more than Melky like but many consider Buchholz right behing Huges prospect wise.

NL East 3rd Basemen:

1. Miguel Cabrera

2. Chipper Jones

3. Ryan Zimmerman

4. David Wright

5. Dobbs/Nunez/Helms

Just sayin

This is why you are widely considered the biggest waste of time in this forum no matter how hard all try and get along with you. The thread was about AL East 2nd baseman but since you thought you'd be a ah@le as is your norm, Wright's 1st 2 full big league seasons are better than anyone on the list except for Cabrera. In fact, they are better than the Captain in the Bronx as well.

Just sayin.........

Not when Jeter is a SS, and Wright is a 3rd baseman. Plus, Jeter won a ring and rookie of the year his 1st season.

It really doesn't matter what position they play. Wright's numbers still were better and if he was a 1996 Yank he would have a ring as well.

OF COURSE it matters. Different positions have different offensive values.

Yep sure they do. When ARod homered as a SS it counted as 3 HR's as opposed to only counting as 1 when he homers now as a 3rd baseman.

The position players play directly effects their value to a team because of ALL the other players who play that spot.

So if Jeter had stepped aside and let the better defensive and offensive SS in ARod play would his numbers be considered so-so as say a 3rd baseman......remember earlier it was stated he'd be first ballot HOF as the Padres RF.

So since Wright plays 3rd Base, his first two full season statistics are not better than Jeters?

Maybe Elias should put a * next to them....note: he doesn't play SS like Derek Jeter.
