Juan Pierre is yet another reason why waiting on steals is more than okay at the draft table, and why I target high power, run, rbi type players with my early picks/big purchases, rather than pay the premium 5 tool players bring. (especially players whose value is really tied up in SB's)
My early projections for Juan Pierre are as follows:
535 AB - 80 Runs - 1 Hr - 45 RBI - 38 SB - .301BA
That's a $10 player in 12 team mixers with 5 OF, MI CI, 1 UTIL spot, yet my guess is he'll go for a fraction of that price. Instant value.
My target for SB's in this type of league is 149. Juan Pierre will provide 25% of my target for not very much cash on draft day. Sign me up!
