This Year's Podsednik: Which No-Name Will Steal 40?

Postby BKeller » Wed Feb 04, 2004 12:55 am

Anyone have any nominees for Player Most Likely To Steal 40 Bases This Year That No One Has Ever Heard Of?

I'd include my list, but I can't find any, and I really don't want to have to spend a high pick on Alex Sanchez. The only contenders I see are Chone Figgins (if he plays every day), Damian Jackson (if he plays every day) and Tom Goodwin (if he plays every day). And none of these schmos look like they'll play every day.

B. Roberts
Figgins

We've all heard of Patterson! :) And even then, 40 looks like a big stretch for him, although I'd believe high 20s.

That's more like it! Reed Johnson. I know these guys except for him. Lemme check him out . . . .

Hmmm. Got 42 in the minors one year, but only 5 with the Jays last year in 400+ ABs. And JP Ricciardi doesn't let his horses run. I'm not buying it. But thanks!

Willie Harris. Interesting, if he gets to play, he could do something. But what's up with that .204 average? How can a guy so fast be so bad at getting on base? Can't he learn to bunt his way on?

Rickey Henderson :-D.

40 stolen bases is a lot. Maybe Jerry Hairston will cash in an impressive total this season.

Have you spoken to Tom Goodwin about this issue?

Willie Harris had a decent batting average in the minors.

You ask for people's opinions and then you bad mouth their picks. :-t

If you don't like thier picks, ignore them. Bad-mouthing the people who respond to your posts is a good way to not get any responses. ;-)
