Burke is a great choice for a 2b sleeper could get you 20-25 SBs.

Um...

anyone with the last name roberts. ;-D


I like the Cameron pick. For people who draft their infield spots, starters, and relievers in the first 5 to 8 rounds, guys like Cameron, Hunter, Winn and Rowand all could give 20/20 seasons.

Of those, I like Winn. Batting second behind Ichiro (as I've heard him to be placed) and with Sexson/Beltre behind him, he shouldn't have a problem reaching 100 Runs, 80 RBI, 20 Steals, a .295 AVG and 10 to 15 homers.

Didn't see this name mentioned anywhere ... maybe he sleeps ..

Crisp ...

Batting leadoff vs. 7th and 8th can do wonders for a guys stolen base opportunites. ;-D

Everywhere I read, I see that it is Jeremy Reed that is touted to bat 2nd behind Ichiro. I would actually bumb up Reed's stolen base potential to anywhere between 20-30. And if he is indeed batting 2nd in Seattle, he is a well-worth late round pick.
Also look to Chris Burke in Houston. Garner likes to be aggresive and I could see Burke getting 25-30 sb's.

Jason Bartlett is a sure sleeper. If he wins the job at short in Minnesota and he should given the competition he is up against he should give us 15-20 steals and be a cheap tought spot to fill. I have him for 1.00 .

Not a sleeper just forgotten, Dave Roberts, This year starting CF in SD, will get 500 at bats and lots and lots of steals.

David Wright ... 15+ sb potential should top all REGULAR 3b (though maybe not Figgy, Freel).

Kaz Matsui
Iguchi - stole 20+ bases in Japan. I'm not sure how that will translate here.

1B with power
Derek Lee
Brad Wilkerson

2B
Brian Roberts
Luis Castillo
Tony Womack
Marcus Giles
Jose Reyes
Alfonso Soriano (POWER)

3B
Ryan Freel
Cho Figgins
AROD (POWER)

SS
Rollins
Furcal
Izturis
Jeter
Lugo
Vizquel
Renteria
Cabrerra
Eckstien
Kaz Matsui
Berroa

OF
Pierre
Crawford
Pods
Beltran
Abreu
Dave Roberts
Ichiro
Chavez
Patterson

If youre lucky and can get good power from 1B, 3B, SS and utl, you could try for an OF like
Coco Crisp
Torii Hunter
Johnny Damon
Lew Ford
Randy Winn
Rocco Baldelli
Eric Byrnes
Aaron Rowand

Any combination of these would be wicked as it provides a power and speed combo that cant be beat provided you have at least 3 other power slots. Add a 2B that can swipe 10+ and youll be set for SBs w/o sacraficing power numbers. You wont win the sb category, but you do OK in it.

This also has two advantages.
- All your SBs arent in one basket (pun intended). So if one gets hurt, youre not totally screwed in the sb category.

- Depending on which 3 you choose, you could get more HRs, and RBIs from the 3 combined than you would from having two 30HR hitters & a Pods/Pierre/Crawford type.
I love mock drafts.
