By all accounts, this guy has ridiculous speed (57 SB's and 9 CS in 111 games last year) and is one of the few SB types to have a legitimate chance to be a MLB regular. I've also heard that he doesn't have anything blocking him from the 2B job in SF. I guess my question is why doesn't he get any attention in fantasy circles because of his SB's? With that kind of SB potential (and he's a MI to boot) he has to be one of the top 30 fantasy prospects even if his real value is not nearly as high.

Frasden (or however you spell his name) is ahead of him in San Fran. As is Durham, who is still in his early 30s.

I've heard Sanders will likely be SS (I think he's playing SS right now), but that he doesn't have a good enough arm for it, which may delay him.

He's also is just back from offseason shoulder surgery, still in high A, and is off to an extremely slow start.

Here are his stats so far for San Jose:
.145 in 55 ab's with a 15/5 strikeouts/walks.. 3 for 4 in steal attempts.

He does have blazing speed, but might take a while to fully recover from the surgery and move up. If his arm strength doesn't come back fully a move to second base seems logical. I wouldn't expect him until 2008 at the earliest.

Sanders will be the starting 2B next year, or even this year is Durham continues to struggle. Durham is a free agent this year and Giants can spend money at much more needed places. I really don't think its even a question. I say he steal 30+ his rookie year.
