Wrong forum buddy.

But to answer your question, I would just hold onto Lofton. Victorino could just be throwing out some bursts of speed for now (ex. Adam Dunn?! :-B ) but Lofton is known to steal bags left and right sooo, IMO i'd stick with Lofton.

Victorino's a very interesting player. Plays great defense, hits pretty well (some power, not a ton), but is a poor baserunner (which is scary because i don't know how many baserunning mistakes Phils will let him make beforet they take away his green light). He should do pretty well though; he'll play as much as possible, and he should hit a little better. THe 1:1 K:BB ratio through the first month of the season looks awfully good....

What's the point in even saying wrong forum if you're just going to answer the question anyway? It happened twice in like 5 posts, so it's not like the 2nd guy didn't see the 1st. :-?

Hitting leadoff today with another hit and a stolen base. Better get this guy in your lineups fast!

He's probably on hitting leadoff because Ryan Howard is (earning) his day off.

Too late for me. Weekly roster changes, so his 5 stolen bases in the past 3 games have been on my bench.

He's shaping up to be a draft/waiver steal, folks.

2nd stolen base of the day, 13th overall and 2nd only to Jose Reyes' 18...

If you guys need speed, i implore you to get this guy in your lineups...looks like 45+ bases at this pace is a real possibility.

Victorino is running at every chance he gets on base..

I wonder if Eliezer Alfonzo and Bengie Molina SUCK that bad at throwing out runners. =/. Could be.

Either way I'm happy.

what!?!? He is showing bursts of speed. A guy who steals 13 this early in the season is obviosuly a base stealer. If he gets on base he will steal bases all year. he won't just stop. Base stealers are not just flashes in the pan like a guy who starts the season hot...
