Felipe Lopez + steals?

Postby 1010011010 » Wed Apr 15, 2009 7:19 pm

Where are they? He's getting on base a lot and they hyped him as a base stealer pre season yet he has not even attempted to swipe a bag. What's up with that?

Diamondbacks probably weren't going to run on Yadier Molina

dont know where the steals are but i really wouldn't complain about felipe's performance thus far. be happy he is looking more like the guy he was in st louis rather than when he was with the nats. lopez has been outstanding as a leadoff man for the dbacks this year and is a great UTIL man to have in yahoo leagues where he is eligible at 2b,3b, ss, and OF.

In Soviet Russia, Yadier Molina runs on you (seriously...he stole a base)

1 week into the season and your worried about someone not giving you something he's only going to average 1 of a week....?

You had him projected at what, 20 steals....and there are 24 weeks in the season.....thats less than 1 a week. If he had 4 SB right now it could be just as possible that he wouldn't steal another base the next 2 weeks. Steals aren't a consistant commodity...which is why they are devalued in H2H leagues because you really never know when you will get them from most people....few exceptions. Good 'ol Bonifacio got 3SB in his very first game and has given you 1 since, even though he has consistantly gotten on base. Felipe Lopez may go another week with out a SB but in the next week after that he could give you a couple 2SB games and be right back on track for 20-25 steals just like you expected.

Be patient and trust your rankings/projections.

Were you thinking he still plays for Washington?
LOL check again :-b




Maybe Arizona feel he has lost too much speed and won't let him run willy-nilly. :-?
