Hmmm...his minor league OBP:

2002 A .360
2003 A .406
AA .419
2004 AA .399
AAA .384
ML .316

Looks to me like he gets on base just fine. He only had 52 ABs in ML as a 22 year old rookie... So unless you have something else to back it up, looks like he doesn't have to 'steal' first to get some steals.

now there's a guy who's going to have to steal first. he's fast but he's over the hill for a prospect and will be hard pressed to get a whiff of pt in the majors this year

Well I was just pointing out the ones I haven't seen posted everywhere.

Kenny Lofton is my big sleeper though

.290 - .300
90 -100 runs
10-16 hrs
56-64 rbis
36-42 sbs

Bookmark this and shove it in my face if I'm wrong but I doubt I will be. Lofton is back with his boy Thome so lookout. Should be batting second in a stacked Philly lineup.

The last time Lofton swiped over 30 bags was '98. I really don't see that happening. ;-)

Not necessarily for lack of ability though. He might not have stolen over thirty, but he's posted thirty and twenty-nine in two of the past three seasons.

True but he's getting old and the post predicted 36-42 SBs. If he gets 36 SBs I'll run around the Cafe naked... :-o

I'm holding you to that naked man. Oh well I can't justify it but Lofton is not done yet either.
