SBs Down the Stretch

Postby Skin Blues » Thu Sep 27, 2012 9:54 am

So the final week is upon us, and many of us are tightly bunched in the SB category, where a few extra steals could be the difference between winning and losing. Who is the best waiver-wire pickup from here on out? Most players are dealing with some sort of injury at this point so health and opportunity are likely bigger factors than speed.

Jarrod Dyson - Cain is out for the year, Dyson is apparently healthy enough to play the field. However he sat last night in favour of David Lough (horrible hitter with no future).
Jordan Schafer - lat injury has limited him, but he's trying to get back in time to make an impression in the final week.
Eduardo Nunez - Yankees hate that he sucks at defense, and probably won't get any full games unless Jeter or A-Rod get injured again
Ezequiel Carrera/Michael Saunders - Not the fastest guys but they'll be playing every day.

Thoughts?

Dyson would be my pick. The Royals have series' against the Indians (ranked 28th in SB against) and Tigers (ranked 25th in SB against) remaining on their schedule.

Thanks. I was thinking the same thing, without even checking the SB against. Only problem is David Lough got the start again today. No word about Dyson's injury status... reports are sparse this time of year since pretty much everybody is injured to some extent, teams don't bother with the DL, and most teams are out of contention anyway. Don't they know I need steals for my fantasy league?!

I guess that Schafer would be choice #2, but it's basically playing pin the tail on the donkey with these options.
