SB sleepers

How about Jason Repko, he doesn't play half the time but he's a good baserunner and already has 6 SB's. He's available in most leagues I'm sure.

I like how some of the players being named as SB sleepers will get hardly any playing time, or will be in the minors all year :-D . How are they fantasy sleepers when the will get no playing time? A sleeper player has to be playing in order to steal bases.

Well that's sort of true d-knight, but I need to speculate a little here as anyone who is playing like repko and gathright are already gone.

Thanks to who ever brought up lofton. I may actually pull the trigger on that one. Man this forum kicks ass. Thanks to everyone who responded.

i agree here with lofton. i picked him up when he came off the DL and he's been running a decent amount. don't expect much in the way of HR and RBI's but he shouldnt hurt you anywhere else.

I've been saying Gathright since January. He's now leading off and TB has serious injury issues. Even with 300 AB, he should be good for 30 SB with a good BA.

Kerry Robinson was just called up a few days ago.

Didn't play last year, but in 2004 he had 11SBs in only 92 ABs. He won't help you much in any other category, but the SBs should be decent.

Chris Duffy of Pittsburgh. He can steal but the problem is getting on. If he gets more walks and cuts the SO's down he'll be a SB threat.

I know Wright isn't a sleeper but some may under estimate his SB ability
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
