When you have guys like Everth Cabrera, Juan Pierre, Nate McClouth, Coco, etc., guys who you get for dirt cheap in the latest rounds, sometimes even off the wire, what's so special about braun's 20-25 stolen bases? Miggy is way more valuable IMO.


By that logic what's so special about Miggy's homeruns when you can grab guys like Dunn, Davis, or Brown in later rounds and sometimes even off the wire?

It's silly to ignore an entire category when comparing two players. Braun's stolen bases have plenty of value because they require you to use less roster space on SB guys like the ones you listed. Those roster spots have value and using them on guys like those can hurt you in the other four categories (or at least 2-3 of them).


Adam Dunn and Ike Davis will hurt you. Juan Pierre and Coco Crisp will help you.

Juan Pierre hurts you in HR and RBI (and this year AVG) just like Adam Dunn hurts you in AVG and SB. It's production you have to make up elsewhere.

Good one. Get a life. It's a reasonable opinion about a fantasy baseball topic. You are a loser.

Your "reasonable opinion" flew out the window when you said...

Juan Pierre is useful for one 5x5 category, steals. But, yes, you are right. He will certainly not hurt you at all in the other 4 categories :-?

Whatever bro. Saying sh*t like that means you're either a child or you're a worthless loser.
