Victorino is running

So far tonight, he's responded to the benching with a walk, an RBI single and two steals.

If someone dropped him in your league, take advantage.

More rest? :-[

Charlie is really starting to piss me off. Shane had a 12 pt night going with half the game to go and gets benched for "more rest" he didn't play the last two days he's not 40 what is going on...

What a poorly managed organization Philly is this year.

Just because he's bailing them out now doesn't mean the move of Myers to the pen wasn't one of the dumbest things I can remember.

And I'm still trying to understand why they only went one game with a smarter lineup that had Victorino leading off and Rollins batting behind him. Victorino gets on base enough that he can start scoring on all those Rollins homers.

Back to the fantasy perspective, the Flyin' Hawaiian is on pace for about 45 steals, should hit .280-plus and, if Howard gets going and Victorino stays in the 2-hole, score something close to a hundred runs. Double digits in homers also seem like a possibility in that park.

A lot of "ifs" there, but that line would make him a little more valuable than a Juan Pierre.

And he's still available in about half of all fantasy leagues. What's it gonna take?

i am actually serious. take a look at crawford's breakout year.

.281-avg 5-HRs 80-runs 54-rbis 55-steals

the only number that is probably out of reach is the 55-steals. but he can easily top crawford in the other four categories. and by the way he's on pace for about 55-steals.

3-for-4 so far tonight, and he just stole his second bag of the night.

Doubters?
