Hitting where he does is huge, especially since Utley and Howard haven't even fully got it going yet. I know the steals aren't as big, but you still get a couple points per right?
Right now Victorino is up there in "points" with the likes of Holliday, C Lee, Crawford......
I know he probably doesn't finish up there with them, but he will definately out point Gonzalez this year, don't you think?
I guess it depends on what your roster looks like, but I think I'd find a way to have the Flyin Hawaiin on my team.
It is looking more and more like you are right about that, BUT in the league in which I own AGonz, SBs mean basically squat. My lineup is so stacked in the league with guys who are sneakily heavy point talliers that I'm out to like a 2200 to 1900 lead over everybody else in spite of having 30 fewer innings pitched than other teams (1 point per out) that are even close to my point total. I've allowed myself some freedom to mix it up with the UTIL spot because every other hitting spot is absolutely locked in. (14 team)
OF- Pierre- top 10 point scorer in this format last year
There's a chance that Vic will be a top 50 hitter all season, and being at the top of the lineup will afford him a good opportunity to score a lot of points, but I dropped him before his current hot streak and I don't expect him to outscore any of my lineup staples.
In roto though, you'd be right, I'd be crying right now. Those steals would be way too valuable, but I missed out on him in roto, got there ten minutes too late and had to settle for Rowand.
