Because speed kills in Fantasy Baseball, especially speed that doesn't come at the expense of your power categories. The only two legit basestealers that won't dent your power categories are Beltran and Soriano (Vlad won't be stealing that much anymore). That's why these two are invaluable.

Wow, took all the way to page 2 for Kent to get mentioned.
Personally, I like Kent over Boone this year in every catagory except steals.
I rank them:
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
there is no one in all of baseball that can match Soriano's speed and power combo (even more valuable at maybe the weakest offensive position)... comparing him to Boone, there is NO single cat that you can point out where Boone definitely will do better than him im also really surprised that people think that Boone in Safeco has more power potential than Soriano in Texas... also last year's 16 SB were a career high for Boone which he prolly won't match this year
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
