As I sit here entertaining my little Halo fan, with the MLB Network pulsing in the background like an i.v. drip keeping me alive until the first spring training game airs on Monday, they are putting second basemen through "the shredder" to rank the 10 best in baseball. Our own Howie Kendrick came in at #9.
In my opinion, he should at least be ranked above Ackley who doesn't have the longevity to really make the list. I also question that Zobrist is more valuable than Kendrick. He only broke out in '09, then slumped in '10 before bouncing back some last year. He is more valuable as a utility player than a straight up second baseman. What do you all think? Compared to those you see above Howie on the list, is #9 accurate? It's the darkest hour of the off-season, with little to no news to sustain us. So let's distract ourselves a little longer with this discussion.
