We are now officially past the half-way mark in the season--and more than halfway through our rankings. Below are the shortstop rankings, anyone who qualifies at short in Yahoo, ESPN or CBS leagues qualifies.
In most cases I think our rankings came down to who we felt would rebound, or would be more likely to rebound. Most of us have one or two players that we ranked way ahead of the pack, and in most cases its a player that has been underperforming and we think will improve, or an injured player that may have more of an impact on his return.
Obviously placing Troy Tulowitzki was hard, but he fell in what I felt was a similar area that other injured players have been falling to in our rankings. Interesting that Clint Barmes, Tulo's replacement, made the list as well--he's been red hot since starting at short.
As always, the best part of rankings is that people feel differently and question them, so question away! Particularly if you're wondering about one person's ranking, ask in the comments below and we'll do our best to respond.
