In leagues with 15 games eligibility, Figgins is only an OF. And there are much better options than him at OF. He had more than half the games required to play 2B and SS, too bad the Angels couldn't give him a few more games at each MI spot. For fantasy purposes :-D

Maybe you wouldn't consider him a sleeper, but I seriously think Alomar will have a big season.

Alomar=toast.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Trans,

It's definitely hard to make a call on Reyes. I think he could be a good sleeper next year. I'm thinking maybe 8-12 round next year taking scarcity into account. What do you think?

Well he's in a good lineup, and there have been some over-achievers in Toronto. ie: Chris Woodward two years ago, Little Cat for the first part of last season, Eric Hinske his rookie year ( :-P ), Greg Myers last year, etc. So ya never know, maybe it's his year. I wouldn't put money on it though.

Man I wish he was, just to raise the 2b bar up a bit, but I sure don't think so
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Kata is slated to start 2b at this point, I'm pretty sure. They have the Hairston kid on the farm but don't think he's quite ready.
