Ride the hot streak if you can, but he sucks as a whole.
Luckily I spot started him yesterday and took his 3 steals, which is probably 10% of what he'll have all season.
i disagree. he's a steals machine when healthy. that's the problem though, he's always battling some kind of injury. he might not help you in average but now that he has an everyday spot he'll help out in runs and sb's.
5 of his steals have come in the past week....was he injured to start the season or is it just a fluke that he got so hot lately?
Keep in mind that 2 of his steals yesterday came against the Maddux/Barrett combo which is not exactly an intimidating presence to baserunners.
I find it funny how after one 3 steal game, or a 2-3 HR game, the player suddenly has an instant fan club around here.
This is still Dave Roberts we're talking about, and while he does have some SB potential, he will
have a minor injury soon and his value will not be this high all season most likely.
Like I said, ride him while you can but I really think you're seeing Dave Roberts at his peak value right now.
