I think its a bit of both...there's always that one player that you buy a little stock into, whether its football or baseball, and I'm buying his stock.
In 63 games last year, he had 22 stolen bases and 10 home runs. His batting AVG wasn't that great, but I think he made up for that in runs scored (44). To me, those are pretty good numbers for most leagues being 5x5 scoring, and if he's leading off, those numbers will probably be even better in his next 63 games. Like I said, i'm buying the stock, I think he's got the potential to be a tier 2 OF.
He's a 30-40 sb guy for sure. But 12 hrs was his high in the minors. His last 26 games, he hit 2 hrs with a .506 OPS. ZIPS and Marcel have him at .260, 10-12 hrs. To me, he's basically a sb and runs guy.
