It's funny how a .342 batting average and 38 percent uptick in RBIs can make up for noticeable dips in homers, runs and steals. That explains why Ramirez is still the redoubtable choice for No. 2 overall (behind Albert Pujols, of course). Oh sure, there are factions of people who support Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley or even Tim Lincecum (pitching-heavy league) at the 2-hole in fantasyland, but pound-for-pound, HanRam is the sensible move here despite a reasonably deep corps of shortstops.
Projections: 27 HRs, 106 RBIs, 117 runs, 34 steals, .330 average.
