he's been smokin the ball lately, scoring runs, and, naturally, stealing bases. but will any of that but the latter continue? i'm willing to bet the d-rays go .500 the rest of the way. is that enough for crawford to be a top-15 fantasy OF?

yea i think he can be a top 15 OF- and plus even if the D Rays go 500 the rest of the way, they will still get 82 wins- and that is a huge upgrade form last year- ok back to Crawford- the guy is insnely fast, he can hit and will hit for average, a plus in my book

Crawford's really been more patient this year. If he stays patient all year, I see no reason in the world he can't end up with 120 runs, 70 SB's, around 10 homers and finish over .300 for the season.

For Roto? A hundred times more valuable; he will almost single handedly win you the stolen base category. He is so underrated this year, of course next year will be another story...

In roto terms that is Top 5 OF'er stuff and yeah it looks as though he is capable of doing that.

Crawford is doing great, but these are the numbers we've been expecting from him. Id say he is well worth holding on to.

Just offered Burroughs and Looper for him - what do you think?

The guy also has Manny in LF, his active 3B is Robin Ventura (Chavez is on the DL) and his one closer is Benitez. I have Hillenbrand at 3B and Smoltz & Takatsu as closers, so I can give up Looper.

I don't think you'll get Crawford with Burroughs and Looper. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
