Yes, SBs is a category in H2H, but if Hunter averages two steals a month for the rest of the year (generous, as he's got three total for all May and June), then he projects to be just as valuable as fellow Twin Joe Mauer, who also has three SBs in May and June (in roughly 3/4 the playing time). Those 11 SBs were great in April, but in H2H they mean absolutely nothing now.

Ahh, now I understand.

True, if he stops stealing the May SBs don't mean anything to you but hopefully you were starting him then and they won a few points for you.

I still think that it's just an injury acting up. The groin was a problem in early May and the report that Pogo pointed to was May 28. I hope that he gets over them soon and starts stealing again.

I love this quote from Torii:

News: Despite several ailments, Torii Hunter went 4-for-5 with two home runs, two RBI and four runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8 win over Arizona. "I got bone chips in my elbow, my AC joint is separated, I got a broke toe, hamstring, groin - you name it, I got it," Hunter said. "It's just the mentality. Some people have to be 100 percent to play; some don't."

This year, 10 of Hunter's 14 SBs came in a 12 game period.
Last year, 9 of Hunter's 21 SBs came in a 14 game period.

Streaky basestealer.

I was able to grab him off the wire... some numbnuts dropped him about a month and some change ago... made my outfield Vlad, Torii and a Brian Giles/Corey Patterson platoon.
