But guys lets not forget about Barry Larkin. I personally liked this guy's stats for some reason. He has something to his game.

Visquel was a good shortstop, but he wasn't young anymore and he certainly couldn't hit like the other three. Here are the stats for players from 1996-2003 with at least 3000 PA and 50% of their games at short.

Zachary was referring to Wes' comment about the 2008 ASG.

Every so often you get a really strong core of young players at one position (remember the A-Rod/Jeter/Nomar days?), and it seemed that there was just such a group at second in the 2006-2008 timeframe. I remember Uggla being right in that mix, along with Utley, Kinsler, and Pedroia (the other second basemen in that All-Star Game). Since that awful performance ... not so much.
