If your a baseball fan you'll be able to remember which players play at which position. So no you won't get a drag and drop list.

Ichiro was moved to Center Field last season.

I have to agree Brandon Webb is the best right handed starter, but I disagree with with several of the others on that list

I would take Jake Peavy Righty and Johan Santana Lefty, and not just because of last years results.

All Pitchers are lucky to stay healthy... and are just luck in a list like this... particularly closer ... Nathan...

All the rest are excellent offensive and defensive players.

I have some reservations on the decline of Vladdy, if Nick Markakis is an excellent defender, Griffey Jr. is in right now.... and their is decline again, Brad Hawpe (?), Magglio Ordonez (?), Dye and Abreau...Jeff Francoeur is the only non-center fielder to win a Gold Glove last year...

Dye had one in 2000, Griffey last of 10 was in 1999 (as a center fielder), Vlad never won one, in fact Francoeur looks like the only other one in the last 15 years or so (check me I did no look real close).

Really is low quantity at the position.

I would put Jeter at SS personally. I was surprised to hear that Rollins was MVP last year, so I do not think he is the best SS in the MLB personally.
