I picked up Figgins in 04 as FA and have kept him on my team in my main keeper league ever since. All these people are starting to bail on him, he is a streaky player, he has been since he has come on to the scene, He will go 1-30 then turn around and 15-30, right after that. If you need steals pick him up, if he has been droped in your league, bench him when he gets cold, and play him when he is hot.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

I was getting ready to drop him a little while ago, but steals are my worse cat and the only steals option to pick up was Corey Patterson, so I hung onto Chone. Now I'm glad I did.

He has been hitting 9th, but he has hit leadoff a couple times this year.

He stunk his first month of the season because he missed spring training. Now he's back to being the Chone of old. Anyone who dropped him or traded him should be kicking themselves now.

I have no doubt that he'll be back to business as usual, and his numbers will soon reflect that, but I traded him today. B-)
