Can you make up the loss of power and RBI's though? I think in a competitive league that's hard to do. Also, by drafting Reyes you have to go into the season expecting to win steals but Reyes can't do it alone. You're going to have to find one more guy to swipe bases so who's that going to be, and how much power are you going to lose? I think it might be a downhill battle.
Here's another question. How did Reyes owners do last year?

well if i was able to draft reyes .. my rest of the draft would go like this
2. travis hafner
3. power hitter
4. power hitter
5. power hitter
just keep drafting HR hitters .. reyes is a one man wrecking crew in SB .. you could easily win the SB category with just him in the starting lineup
You picked Hanley 8th overall??

It is no lie, and my success rate has been about the same every year I've done fantasy baseball. Two years ago I won 7 of 8 leagues...last year I won 10 out of 12. Of the 16 leagues I am in this year, two of them are private leagues with highly knowledgable players. Another two leagues are yahoo winners leagues. The rest are public yahoo leagues.
Believe me now? I'm at work right now but when I get home I can start posting links if it is really necessary. Also, regarding the high number of leagues... yes it is a pain and I don't plan on joining this many ever again. However, I drafted the same players on most of these teams so it really doesn't take up that much time.
I feel like people took this as me boasting and bragging... that is not the case. I don't think what I've done is all that impressive considering I am not playing for money. This thread is about success rates for those who did and who did not draft Reyes... and I am definitely a case of success without Reyes. The reason for this is I drafted A-Rod instead.

1. How high did you draft Reyes/ what did you trade for him?
2. What is your league format?
3. How competitive is your league?
4. What place are you in?
It's just an experiment. The more input the better. I understand there are many variables and one player probably can't make that much difference, but I think it's worth looking at.
