may not be a star on the level of some of the other players mentioned here, but he is a very good player (he won the 2005 AL batting title) who made the unusual switch from second to short. He played second base in the minors for the Blue Jays before being traded to Texas in a deal for Estaban Loaiza in 2000. He was Texas's regular second baseman from 2001-03 before moving to shortstop when A-Rod was traded after the '03 season. He won a Gold Glove at short in 2008, then moved to third base last season to make room for promising Elvis Andrus.
