2011 Fantasy Baseball: Top 10 2B

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Cano takes the top spot after posting near MVP numbers.

The top-10 preseason fantasy baseball position rankings continue here at FBS. Last time we listed fantasy baseball catchers, this time it’s for the second basemen. Once thought of as a thin position in fantasy baseball, the 2B talent pool has grown considerably in the last few years, so much so that you could get good value for taking a second baseman in the later rounds. Here are my early pre-spring training rankings for 2B.

Please Note: Stats are listed as: Average, HR, RBI, Runs, SB/Attempts and AB. The player’s age at the start of the 2011 season is next to his team’s name.

1) Robinson Cano – New York Yankees (28)

2010: .319-29-109-103-3/5 (626)

Cano took a large step forward last year to become the clear-cut best second basemen in baseball. (more…)

Albert is number one, but who makes the rest of the top 10?

With fantasy football coming to a close in the next few weeks it is time to take a look at this upcoming fantasy baseball season. Pitchers and Catchers will report to spring training in just over a month, and though opening day is still a ways away, teams are starting to come together. Some major names were on the move this off-season and the statistics should be increased in some cases. We are going to start off by discussing first baseman. First base is arguably the highest producing position in fantasy baseball and there are a lot of major names who play first.

Check out the rest of our positional breakdowns in the coming weeks!

First Base:

1. Albert Pujols – St. Louis Cardinals (more…)

Price and the Rays finished the regular season with the best record in the AL.

The 5 offensive categories used:

HR’s, RBI, Runs, Average, and SB’s

The 5 pitching categories used:

Wins, Saves, WHIP, ERA, and K’s

Has Mauer lived up to his price tag?

Either you’re fighting for any possible edge as you try to bring home a playoff win or championship ring or you’re accidently looking at this article while trying to do research because your stud quarterback got hurt. As the fantasy baseball season winds down, here is a look at one of the last Positional Power Rankings.
