Of all the guys with 20 plus steals this year, who has the most HR's? By far its Podsednik. Not Roberts, Sanchez, Crawford, Pierre, Figgins....
Is he over valued? Depends on what you look for. Sure he won't get you the RBI's or the awesome leadoff BA. But the runs, SB's, HR's are all nice in this package.
He isn't a one year wonder. People point out that he couldn't be this good because he wasn't this good for his entire minor league career. The only thing I can contribute to this is the lack of production for so long is nobody to menter him and help him along the way. The Mariners probably didn't do him any favors by having a solid OF for a few years. The Brewers don't take care of the minor leagues besides of keeping their young players in their to grow and hopefully get better on their own. Look into the number of minor league teams that have filed for a new major league affiliate against the brewers for proof. They may have some of the best prospects, they however don't have the coaching provided to develop them effectively.
I for one will take Podsednik on my team if BA isn't a large concern in my league. Even if it is, the steals and the occasional power is hard to pass up.
