Has anybody else noticed his home vs road stats this year? Seems he's a helluva lot better on the road (AVG, H, SB, OBP, etc...) than at home.

3 SBs in 3 games.... Bet some people feel pretty stupid at this point.

Bump, 'cause the kid hit a homer and stole another base. Common, guys! And you wanted to drop him because he wasn't stealing bases for like 15 minutes inEarly June? Pssh.

i don't know why anyone would want to drop victorino. isn't he on pace for 10+ hrs and 40+ sbs? that's always usable in a standard 12 team league. he's going to be a better option than any speedster you'll find in the FA at this point in the league (dave roberts, lofton, duffy, hart, etc).

I think Hart may have more pop with a few less steals, and hit at a higher average if he continues to get playing time.

I don't get it either...Victorino is a solid #3 OF for a team that needs SB...his #'s so far this year are better then Pierre's, and I don't normally here a lot of grumblings about Juan "I can't hit a HR" Pierre...

Pierre: .278, 0 HR, 14 RBI, 36 R, 20 SB
Victorino: .272, 6 HR, 25 RBI, 42 R, 21 SB

He's definitely undervalued. If he keeps going at this pace, and has 600 ABs by the end of the season...heres what he would have:

16 HR, 61 RBI, 102 R, 49 SBs, .280 Avg
Now, guess who this guy was last year?
17 HR, 59 RBI, 119 R, 51 SBs, .292 Avg (in 633 ABs)
or this guy
18 HR, 77 RBI, 89 R, 58 SBs, .305 Avg (in 600 ABs)

At this pace, Victorino could have top 5 round value by years end, and what a steal considering the majority of people could have gotten him as a FA.
