this guy has been simply amazing. who could have predicted that a 32 yr old career back up, who has spent most of his pro career bouncing around the minors, with less than 700 major league at bats, would have the kind of season that hes having? Hes a leadoff hitter who is slugging over .500, has hit 10 HRs to go along with his 18 steals and 55 runs, walks 12% of the time and has already accumlated 4.3 WAR this season!
how is he only owned in 35% of yahoo leagues?
and do yo guys think that variance has just smacked torres in the face and hes having a career year producing numbers that he'll never approach again? or is this a payer who is getting his first legitimate shot to play everyday, is having a breakout year, and is showing us what his true talent level is?
oh and by the way, just another 4 hit day today with 2 runs, 3 RBI, and a monster HR into the bay.

Seriously though, I have no idea how this guy is only owned in that many leagues.
I just wish I actually had room to get this guy some starts, as I've got Dunn, Cruz, Gardner, and Abreu all in front of him.
might be time to start torres over either abreu or gardner. hes been far more valuable than both of them for the past month and shows no signs of slowing down. i also have both gardner and abreu, along with cargo, huff, ellsburied and grandersuck. i just picked up torres today, and have a trade lined up so i can play him.
Been on-board since the end of May, to tell the truth. Kind of figured it was going to be a short-term deal, but he's continued to put up too decent of numbers to just drop for the next flavor of the day. . . .
Seeing regular play amongst my Quentin, Willingham, Delmon Young, and Beltran.
