Grey's recap of the top 20 shortstops according to ESPN's player rater:

http://razzball.com/top-20-shortstops-2011-fantasy-baseball/

The table below shows Grey's preseason ranking, # of leagues they were drafted in, the average draft position of those selected in all 38 leagues, and the earliest and latest each was selected (ND = Not Drafted).

Wow, Asdrubal wasn't even drafted in one league? Also, I wonder if the person who drafted Hardy held them all year. Seems doubtful or they weren't paying attention in April.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

It was actually the #1 league, ECFBL, who didn't draft Asdrubal, but he was picked up before the season started. Worse, I had him in 1 league, and dropped him.

As for Hardy, he was dropped in most leagues before he had 20 ABs. The teams that held on to him were teams that were not making many moves.

Here are the first 12 drafted shortstops, showing where the teams that drafted them finished in the standings. Not 1 team overcame the early drafting of Hanley to finish first.

And here are the Asdrubal Cabrera results, including the team that picked him up right after the draft:

1st: 1
2nd: 2
3rd: 6
4th: 7
5th: 3
6th: 4
7th: 2
8th: 4
9th: 4
10th: 2
11th: 1
12th: 2

Wow, Hanley really killed teams. Thanks again for doing this research, it really is fascinating.

I guess a first round total bust CAN affect a team... When a guy you're counting on to produce across the board winds up not doing anything whatsoever, it's painful. Thanks, Hanley!!
