Shortstop is a position where we still might see some additional flux between now and Opening Day – maybe not with the Mets as Flores will likely be starting in April, but almost certainly in Philadelphia.

Ranking the NL East Second Basemen

We saw some change within the division at the Winter Meetings with the Marlins making a significant upgrade at second and appearing to be serious this offseason about a wild card run in 2015, much to the Mets’ chagrin.
