My Preferred 2014 Second Baseman
A few months ago, Dustin Ackley moved to the outfield because it looked like Nick Franklin was taking the second base job for the foreseeable future. Since then, Nick Franklin has been atrocious, while Dustin Ackley has showed some signs of life. Both have shown flashes of their potential, and both have had flaws exposed, raising legitimate questions about their long term value.
Here are their season to date numbers through Labor Day, followed by a poll asking a simple question that I’m curious to see the results of: based on what you’ve seen this year, which one would you rather have starting at second base on Opening Day next year?
