This morning the Brewers announced that Scooter Gennett will be honored with a bobblehead in 2014, another potential sign of the team's confidence that he'll start most days at second base this season. They're pretty remarkably certain of that fact, especially considering that Rickie Weeks is still on the roster.
Weeks has made 982 appearances at second base since debuting in 2003, the second-most in franchise history (Jim Gantner had 1449, 37th most in MLB history). Since 2003, only six second basemen have made 1000 or more appearances for one team.
That was the inspiration for today's Thinker: Can you name the 30 players who lead their team in appearances at second base since 2003?
