Additionally, with all the steals thus far, it appears that he will still hold good value even if the bat goes cold for a while.



55 at-bats...and 7 walks. 20 K's. If his bat goes cold...odds are he isn't stealing many bases.

7 bb, 20 k, 4 hr, 4 steals,15 RBI?

I guess I don't understand your point? Just because a player strikes out alot doesn't mean he can't be very productive. (even more so in fantasy than in real life).

In 2009 mark Reynolds had 223 k's (career high), he also had 44 hr and 24 steals. That is 1st round production. (or even #1 overall production)

1) people need to stop the assumption that a high k rate is automatically a precursor for bad fantasy numbers.

2) why are we under the assumption that cespedes is hot right now? We have no clue how good of a hitter he is. Maybe he is still adjusting to major league pitching and has only scratched the surface of what he can do.

How did you get such a beast team and he has such a mediocre team? Auction draft? I mean, you have 5-6 2nd and 3rd rounders on this team. Plus Miggy.

I guess I just don't understand why everyone seems so sure that pitchers are going to "figure him out". What makes you so sure that the learning curve is on the pitchers side? Why aren't people saying just wait until he "figures out" major league pitching, then he'll be a serious beast.

This! ;-D

Cespedes is ranked as the 10th best OF on yahoo. While I don't expect that to be the case at year end with guys like Josh Willingham, Andre Either, Nolan Reimold in front of him...you can bet he will use that to hike the price.
