However, we know how valuable your time is. The significant other has a springtime honey-do list a mile long, and the MLB season is fast approaching. Don't worry, we have your back.
Below is our CliffsNotes (or Readers Digest , if you insist) version of shortstop draft prep. The specific players ep and jzak are targeting in 2010 fantasy baseball drafts.
Hanley Ramirez: Consensus pick by both ep and myself here. Can't ask for a better combination of statistics. I personally would take him first overall, as I mention in my NL-East preview . Ep has a good discussion going about the first overall pick.
Asdrubal Cabrera: There are a bunch of shortstops that will be picked in the middle rounds that will probably under-produce Cabrera this season. People seem to forget how good he was in limited action last season, and he has valuable multiple-position eligibility to boot.
Alcides Escobar: First of two consensus late-round targets at shortstop, Escobar is one of many reasons I'm excited for the Brewers in 2010 and beyond. As with Cabrera, Escobar is going to be more of a speed option than a power threat, but he has gone deep this spring and plays in an incredibly talented offensive lineup.
