Part six in my Top 10...Since 1980 series was shortstop, and for me it was actually the easiest so far in terms of picking a top ten. As for where to rank them, that was a bit tougher.
A guy like Alex Rodriguez and a guy like Ozzie Smith are so vastly different they are tough to compare.
As was case with past lists, 1,000 career games played were needed to qualify, so no Jose Reyes or Hanley Ramirez for this one. Also Robin Yount will be considered a center fielder for this list.
Only stats from 1980 on were considered, and players have been ranked accordingly with both offensive and defensive stats considered.
I look forward, as always, to arguing my case so I encourage you to comment with any proposed changes.
So let's start with number 10...
