The only thing that worries me about Crawford is what he pulled last year...basically gave up running for SB's late August into September saying there was no need to hurt himself...ended up tying for the top spot in Stolen Bases because of that...


HAHA... I am in the same boat as you man... I have Carl Crawford and Jose Reyes.... MANNNN... they are both dominating the league with speed, major hitting and more! Especially Reyes! I recently acquired Crawford, and wanted to get him when he stole those 4-5 bases a month or so ago... I basically traded away Vladimir Guerrero and got Carl Crawford (when he was SUPER COLD) AND Carlos Lee in return... a wise investment I have NOT looked back upon! ;-D

I had him ranked 3 or 4 coming into the season with Santana. I took him 4th overall in my money league, non-keeper and got bashed for passing on Tex. Snatched him at the 11th spot in my 12 team keeper and laughed at people.

He's just going to get better and that lineup is very overlooked. Whats not to like? 20-25 HRs with a high average. 90-100 Rbis with 110+ runs and of course the 50-60 Sbs.

Think about this...he is flirting with becoming a .900 OPS guy with 60 SB. If you like fantasy baseball you like Carl Crawford.

guys in my league obviously don't value fast guys. I actually got Ichiro in round 2 and Crawford in round 3. My first round pick was Johan btw.

if crawford continues this pace for the rest of the year, he will get heavy consideration for the AL MVP

Crawford is putting together a fantasy season for the ages and is still only 24 (or 25). He is on pace for something like 325-25-95-110-65. Yikes.

Unlike a lot of other speed guys, he's a good hitter who has speed rather than a guy who needs his speed to be a good, so when he loses a step or two (assuming he does) he's got the skills to still be a good hitter.
