I'm not really that worried, but mostly because there is nothing you can do but wait. I think it would be dumb to drop him and there aren't many SB options on anyone's WW.

Tavs isn't running because the Astros are hitting. Biggio's been out in front of him on the basepaths a lot, that's true. But the greater cause is Berkman, Ensberg, Lane and the rest mashing behind him. There's no reason to run Tavs for SBs.

That's good baseball. The fact that it's bad for fantasy owners goes to show the difference between reality and fantasy.

biggio is leading off this year for the same reason he took over the leadoff last year...willly t doesnt get on base enough to be a consistant leadoff hitter yet

his avg was over 3 last year, but he didnt draw enough walks or show much plate discipline...that could change part way through the year as he matures, which would probably lead to more stolen bases
