This guy is a good vet on a team in need of leadership by example. Also, he's been swinging the bat well and already has 2 SB's. I'd say he finishes as one of the top 5.
I don't think I'd go that far. The guy is 39 years old, and somehow posted numbers last year FAR exceeding his recent years stats. And now he has much less protection in that lineup.
Definitely worth picking up though. Same can be said for Kaz (personally, I chose Kaz over Biggio just because of the age and Beltran hitting behind him).
