Here's part two!
A consistent 30-30 threat and one of the most dynamic second baseman in the game. Made major strides defensively in 2008, taking home his first gold glove.
Could hit for a better average and is prone to inconsistency, but is no doubt one of the best at his position and still young enough to improve.
Some might think he should be higher, but no doubt he has become a different, less dominant pitcher since his fastball lost velocity.
K-Rod is still the single season saves champ however, and one of the premiere closers in the game.
The Dodgers young right fielder has benefited immensely from the presence of Manny Ramirez in the lineup, taking his game to another level since Manny arrived.
A quality run producer who has really developed power in the last year or so, Ethier looks to be a fixture in right field for L.A. for years to come.
Has been a picture of consistency the last 10 years, finishing with at least 100 RBI in six of those years. Has always been a high OPS guy, and despite his size Berkman actually swiped 18 bags last year.
He has never been too good with the glove and at 33, age might be starting to catch up with him. In the mean time, Berkman is an All Star caliber player when he's going right.
Who not named Randy Johnson has thrown the most innings and struck out the most batters in the last 10 years?
You guessed it—Javier Vazquez, who has been absolutely dominant in Atlanta this year.
He'll have a few stinkers here and there, but it's hard to think of a team who wouldn't want a guy who eats innings and racks up strikeouts.
Despite a poor start and just recently turning 34, Derrek Lee is turning in his best season in years amidst a lost season for the Cubs.
Since coming over to the Cubs (ironically, after beating them en route to a World Series victory with the Marlins), Lee has been one of the team's bedrocks, winning the 2005 batting title. He is one of the game's premiere defensive first basemen.
The Cubs have had problems scoring runs this year, but it sure hasn't been this guy's fault.
After Ichiro, Chone Figgins might be the best leadoff hitter in the game.
He puts the ball in play, and with the wheels he has, that's all he has to do to give himself a real shot at getting on base.
An exceptional defender as well, he's played just about everywhere except first base and catcher. A Mike Scioscia kind of player if ever there was one, the Angels would be insane to let him leave this offseason.
The Dodgers like him so much they made no effort to keep Derek Lowe or Brad Penny this past offseason, confident Billingsley would step in as their new staff ace.
Billingsley has been very good this year while healthy, but he still has things to learn. A definite keeper for the Dodgers though.
They were wise not to include him in a deal for Roy Halladay.
I can tell automatically some will think he's too low, but he is hurt right now. Reyes is an explosive leadoff man with base stealing prowess to turn walks and infield singles into doubles easily.
Some have begun to question his maturity, and whether that mind hinder his ability to improve; fortunately he's quite good already.
For him to be productive as he can, I think he needs to keep leading off so I'm anxious to see where Jerry Manuel writes him in when he comes back.
I don't think there was a harder player for me to rank on the whole list. On one hand, you have the Cole Hamels who was absolutely magnificent last October, winning four postseason games and both the NLCS and World Series MVP awards.
On the other hand, you have the thoroughly mediocre pitcher of 2009 who has looked very hittable and seems to have forgotten how to keep the ball from landing in the stands.
He has top 25 upside and is just too good to struggle like this forever. Based on where he's at right now though, this is as high as I can put him.
Since becoming an everyday player in 2007, The Flyin' Hawaiian has not let Philadelphia down, forming a formidable duo at the top of the Phillies lineup with Jimmy Rollins and making all the plays in center field.
More so than most players in the majors, Victorino epitomizes leaving it all on the field, and has been praised greatly for his work ethic and leadership ability. Not bad for a rule five draft pick.
The Red Sox wisely decided not to part with Ellsbury in a deal for Johan Santana following their 2007 World Series win.
He does everything you'd want a centerfielder to do; he covers a ton of ground, he's a fantastic tablesetter for the Boston offense, and is a very smart baserunner.
Being a leadoff man, he could definitely draw more walks, but it's hard to find too many other flaws in his game.
Without a doubt, one of the most mystifying stories of the 2008 season was the season long slump of Robinson Cano. Possessing a swing just too sweet to slump forever, Cano has made his struggles a thing of the past with a .318 average in 2009.
The power has returned too, as he has played long ball 18 times this year. Back on track at last, the Bombers' 26-year-old second baseman remains a solid bet to win a batting title before he retires.
Currently leading the league in doubles, Roberts is a bona fide extra base machine and the catalyst behind a potent Baltimore lineup. One of the game's smartest base runners, Roberts also boasts slightly above average power for a second baseman.
He probably strikes out a little too much, but Roberts remains a quality leadoff man nonetheless.
Was knocked out with an injury his first start of the year, so he's kinda been a forgotten man with so many young pitchers coming into their own this year.
Believe it or not, Brandon Webb was the front-runner for the NL Cy Young award at the All Star break last year before Tim Lincecum took off in the subsequent months. Despite the injury this year, he'd actually been extremely durable in the years before.
All in all, Webb is a top 10 pitcher when he's at his best. I want to see what he does after this injury though.
After an injury riddled 2008 campaign, Troy Tulowitzki has reestablished himself as one of the premiere shortstops in the game.
It's pretty hard to not like Tulo's game; he is an absolute joy to watch play shortstop, and is constantly making plays that conjure images of Tulowitzki's hero (Derek Jeter) in his prime defensively.
As Tulowitzki is one of several young stars on the Rockies, the future looks bright for baseball in the Mile-High City.
Pitching in small market Minnesota, Joe Nathan doesn't get nearly the same attention as Jonathan Papelbon or Mariano Rivera.
The truth is that he is close to if not just as lights-out as either of those two.
He last posted an ERA over 2.00 in 2005, a more than respectable 2.70 that actually looks fat compared to his ridiculous stats from last year (1.33 ERA, 39 saves, 74 SO).
At a position notorious for inconsistency, Joe Nathan is as dependable and dominant a closer as there is in the majors.
Brad Hawpe has been a formidable, very productive left-handed bat for the Rockies the last few seasons. Overshadowed then by teammates Matt Holliday, Garret Atkins, Todd Helton, and Troy Tulowitzki, Hawpe quietly had a monster 2007 season, driving in 116 and helping Colorado reach the World Series.
With Holliday gone and Atkins struggling, Hawpe has become one of the faces of the franchise, and was named to his first All Star game in 2009.
The breakout player of the 2009 season, and you can make a legit case for him for AL MVP. Through 112 games, he has already matched the highest RBI total of his career.
It seems he's been around for quite a while, but Hill is only 27 so this breakthrough is no fluke; the light has switched.
In what has been a tumultuous season for Jays fans, Aaron Hill has been one of the best reasons to tune in.
After a rocky start, the 2008 AL Cy Young winner got on track in time to fetch a hefty load from Philadelphia when the Indians traded him there this past trading deadline. One of the great baseball stories of the last few seasons, reinventing himself in the minors after a miserable 2007 campaign, to return to the majors far better than ever.
