4. Mariano Rivera

5. Jonathon Papelbon

8. Freddie Freeman

9. Paul Goldschmidt

10. Ike Davis

Second Base

1. Robinson Cano

2. Brandon Phillips

3. Dustin Pedroia

4. Ian Kinsler

5. Darwin Barney

6. Chase Utley

7. Aaron Hill

8. Jason Kipnis

9. Howie Kendrick

10. Neil Walker

Third Base

1. Miguel Cabrera, I hesitate to do that, since he isn't an all around good 3rd baseman

2. Adrian Beltre. I might change him to 1.

3. Evan Longoria

4. David Wright

5. Ryan Zimmerman

6. Chase Headley

7. Aramis Ramirez

8. Brett Lawrie

9. David Freese

10. Pablo Sandoval

Shortstop

1. Troy Tulowitzki, I think he will stay healthy

2. Starlin Castro

3. Jose Reyes

4. Asdrubal Cabrera

5. Elvis Andrus

6. Erick Aybar

7. Ian Desmond

8. Jimmy Rollins

9. Jed Lowrie

10. Andrelton Simmons

Left Field

1. Ryan Braun

2. Alex Gordon

3. Bryce Harper (im assuming Span with play center and Werth right field)

4. Carlos Gonzalez

5. Yoenis Cespedes

6. Matt Holliday

7. Mark Trumbo

8. Josh Willingham

9. Desmond Jennings

10. Melky Cabrera

Center Fielders

1. Mike Trout

2. Matt Kemp

3. Andrew McCutchen, I predict a small regression next year

4. Adam Jones

5. Austin Jackson

6. Curtis Granderson

7. Jacoby Ellsbury

8. Michael Bourn

9. Chris Young

10. Angel Pagan

Right Fielders

1. Giancarlo Stanton

2. Jose Bautista

3. Justin Upton

4. Ben Zobrist

5. Josh Reddick

6. Carlos Beltran

7. Andre Ethier

8. Alex Rios

9. Hunter Pence

10. Nick Markakis

Yes I left off Jay Bruce. If anyone has any problems with that, check out his advanced metrics. He is very overrated.

DH (just do 5)

1. David Ortiz

2. Billy Butler

3. Adam Dunn

4. Jesus Montero

5. Chris Davis

Update:

Wes I am a Giants fan, and no more than 1 Giants deserves to be number one. Heck, even Posey is shaky being number 1. Molina or Mauer could do better. Giants won it as a team, not as individuals.

Update 2:

Oops, forgot Hamilton. I'd place him 3rd on right fielders if he can stay healthy.

    Only one San Francisco Giants player picked as a #1, yet that team swept the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series. Oh, well.
