Top 5 Shortstops

SDS

List who you think are the Top 5 Shortstops available right now. (Including cards that aren't on the market. IE: Players from the XP Reward Path. Inc Prestige.)

SDS
  1. Ernie Banks
  2. Vidal Brujan (Secondary)
  3. Jimmy Rollins (Need more sample size, but probably second or first for most people)
  4. Carlos Correa/ Didi (Both are pretty even, just depending whether you need a lefty or a righty)
  5. Micheal Young

I know I didn't include the Larkin, but he doesn't rip for me so.

1 showdown run is quite the sample size!

SDS

Banks, Larkin, Rollins, Awards Machado at secondary and HRD Ripken.

SDS

Is banks enough of an upgrade over larkin (my current starter) to justify the high cost of grabbing him? Don't really have anything that I absolutely have to save stubs for with the trout collection done, so I was thinking of splurging a bit.

I wouldn’t judge off of showdown. Also, one you prestige JRoll, the power hits 80 on both sides. Defensively he gets to everything and that you can judge on showdown. He’ll be my choice at 300 stars easy.

CAP
Rollins
Banks
Correa
Didi

OK, Yeah I can judge off Showdown, for me it is the swing of players, I just do not hit with him, I hit good with Larkin. I took Musial to have the awards card and he is good.

SDS

For me CAP is a clear cut #1, but Didi is second for me. I think Banks is extremely overrated card.

SDS
  1. Trevor Story

Rest of the list doesn't matter.

At the end of the day, it's what you feel comfortable with. I personally can't stand Larkin, hits lefties great and struggles vs righties. Jimmy's swing to me is short and quick. Stan is great, 1B is loaded though unlike SS where defense matters.
