In that case, each SB is worth slightly more than it would be if Pierre was stealing 60....thus bumping Reyes' value slightly.

In a 12-team league, though, 40 SBs is only going to be like 3% of the total. I think this would have much more marginal impact on those "cheap SB" guys.


That's pretty much it. Add in the fact that those cheap SB guys take up roster spots. No single player in fantasy baseball has a chance to impact any one category as much as a healthy Reyes can impact SB.

Excellent point.

That is true but on the other hand no single injury is going to kill a team more than the team that loses Reyes mid season to an injury. I personally hate to have the majority of my SB's tied up into a single guy. I much prefer getting a lot of 10-20 SB guys and spreading out the risk. I also don't like pure speed guys because even a minor injury can flush their value right down the toilet as they keep on playing but just don't run.

This is why I never invest in SB guys. So much of Reyes's value is tied to speed that if he has a bum wheel, then he is virtually worthless.
