Xander Bogaerts was the best SS in fantasy baseball in 2015, scoring 787.4 points.  That is not even one of the top 150 seasons from a shortstop since 1970!  The position is so weak these days it's embarrassing.


There used to be a time when shortstops posted some big boy numbers, including Alex Rodriguez, who owns six of the seven greatest seasons at the position!  Of course Derek Jeter found a way to get his name at the top of this list!
