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 don't think you'll get Crawford with Burroughs and Looper.
No way you will get Crawford that cheap now.
It is no exaggeration to put this guy as a Top 5 fantasy OF.
In roto terms if he steals 70 and hits .300 even with no more homers that is equivalent to a .300 power hitter that doesn't steal like Berkman hitting over 80 HR's.
I rated Pierre highly this year for that same reason but this guy is quicker and has more power. I doubted Crawford could maintain a .280 average to put him on a par with Pierre this season but it looks as though he is going to give .320 a nudge.
This kind of production is definitely 1st / 2nd round material.
