I think he means 55 SB with 75 RBI and 100 R.

Oops you are correct... he wrote them in sort of a strange order, heh, totally missed that 75.

Define 'uber'. I see 105 runs, 22 HR's, 88 RBI's, 53 SB's, .304

One thing that I've seen sites neglect when touting Crawford's power trending up as he hits 27 is that many hitters not only gain power, but lose SBs as they get older and larger. Also guys in better lineups don't run quite as often. If Gomes, Delmon and Co live up to expectations he may not get the green light quite as much. So saying Crawford is a lock for 50+SBs in 2007 and beyond may be a little short-sited.

That said I still think there still is a very good chance (just not a lock) he'll get 50+ SBs and would be more than happy to grab him late 1st/ early 2nd in my 12-team 5x5 league.

Just wanted to throw that in there... that if we project increased HR's we need to project decreasing SBs too.

No wonder Ricky Henderson and Vince Coleman were limited to only 100 SBs a year. ;-)
Good point, but Crawford is SUPER FAST. If the guy can run, he's gonna steal, regardless if he has Pujols, Ryan Howard, and Manny Ramirez hitting behind him.

I think Crawford can easily hit 20 HR and get 60 SB. You all under estimate the DRAYS line-up. If their line-up stays healthy all season he will get over 100 Runs.

I think CC is going to have more RBI than runs this year if he stays 3rd in the order and Rocco and DY are 1-2 like they are supposed to. My projection is high, but i think he does it

.315 22HR 110 RBI 105 R 55 SB

Anyone else think Crawford can reach 100 rbi's this year, assuming he stays in the 3-hole? I believe he would qualify as "uber" if that happens.

i dont see anyway he bats in a position in the lineup where he can get 100RBIs and 55SBs, unless he bats leadoff and cleanup. I love crawford though, I'll take him in a heartbeat if I pick between 6 and 10 and he's available. Love having those pesky SBs taken care of by a guy who you haven;t got to carry in terms of HR and RBI.[/i]
