100 Greatest Second Basemen of All-Time

Explanation of Rankings
CAREER = Career Wins Above Replacement (WAR).
We use bWAR.
LONG PEAK = WAR in best seven seasons.
SHORT PEAK = WAR in best three seasons.
PRIME = WAR in best five consecutive seasons.
TOTAL = (2x Career)+(1.75x Long Peak)+(Short Peak)+(2x Prime) adjusted for era, timeline, and other factors.
