You'll pay for steals and then some guy will beat you in a week with one stolen base from Jason Giambi while Reyes gets none. Then other weeks Reyes will get 10 SBs and the other owner only gets 1, so you've wasted 8 SBs.
Not worth paying for. And it's a nice advantage to know this because someone will still draft Reyes in the top 5. Don't let it be you.
I agree with the scenario you're talking about -- it happens all too often. BUT, I definitely don't ignore SB in H2H. I find that if you have several 20-20 type guys throughout your lineup, the likelihood that they'll take the category down for you each week is much higher. I.e., instead of going for a Reyes type, go for Phillips, Wright, Milledge, Aviles, C.B. Young, etc. They can all contribute every week, but they're not SB-only type guys. They're also trying to win the HR, RBI categories week-to-week too.
