Even with all the knee issues he's still running really well. Excellent at stealing bases, and that triple he just legged out would have been a double for most other players. I got him cheap in a few leagues, and I'm glad he did.

Ender is right about how poorly Howard is running though. And the announcers say that he is looking better...

Apparently, he has to provide his own run support as well. :-t

The problem is that Felix is even nastier. The defense behind him isn't doing him any favors either. He's kind of losing his release point as well. It was a good start ...

Anderson is a suckers play. Won't get a ton of wins, doesn't K enough, injury prone. You are hoping for a short term version fo Johnny Cueto. You can get that off the waiver wire.
