need for speed

Postby baseballboy » Fri Aug 01, 2003 11:07 am

I'm in a 13-team mixed league and as you may expect the waiver wire is pretty bare. I am in dire need of stolen bases as I can make a strong move if I can find a burner. I picked up Jeff Duncan of the Mets but I'm sceptical of him. These are the available players that run a bit on the wire:

Endy Chavez (platoon)
Jerry Hairston (DL)
Cristian Guzman
Luis Rivas
Matt Lawton (DL)
Damion Rolls (platoon)
Julio Lugo (platoon)
Gary Matthews
Bobby Higginson

As you can see, the pickings are slim. Again, a find in the speed department could get me into the money. Three things: (1) thoughts on Duncan; (2) offer advise on these players listed as posible pickups; and (3) do you know of any other unknowns that may pick it up or be promoted to the bigs (i.e. Tiki Redmond, etc.)

chavez should get some sb's and runs with vlad back in there. guzman would be a good pickup too. he runs and if the twins start hitting, he will get a bunch of runs
