I'm freakin' having some serious Brett Gardner love. The guy has really performed, and hardly anyone is talking about him.

Gardner was dropped twice early in my league and I stayed put with what I had, but I wish now I had found a way to get him in as he's turning into a real nice fantasy option.

I wanted Gardner bad in one league but I already had Ellsbury and Morgan (along with the now cut Coghlan) and did not need SB's at all. At least I have him in one league. Which is actually funny since I sat because they were going against a lefty today and he homers.

He's definately underrated in most circles, especially with Granderson out for at least a month. His average is bound to drop a bit, but he'll keep putting up SB and R at a high rate. He should be owned in all formats at this point, and he's been saving my OF with Lee and Jones struggling early on...

This guy deserves every day at-bats even when Granderson comes back. He is a run scoring and base stealing machine.

Nick Johnson's injury could be very good for Brett. Hopefully he can put the #2 spot in the lineup on lockdown.

Yeah, that would raise his value quite a bit. Looks like he is pegged in the #2 spot today versus Boston.

Little confused though, maybe someone can help me out here: Shouldn't Jeter be moved back into the #2 spot now that they have a legit leadoff guy in Gardner? Jeter's natural spot is second, not leadoff IMO. And Gardner would be more effective as the leadoff man, not hitting second. Doesn't make sense to me... :-?

2nd spot for awhile would be reeaal nice...2-5 today with a run and yet another SB. 14 SB on the season now. His average is up to .348

Garder might just turn into a jet...like a boss, and bomb the Russians...like a boss.
