  1. I have Kelly Johnson and picked up Trevor Plouffe and am actually starting him during KJ’s slump. I could use steals, would it be wise to drop KJ for one of these guys?

  2. Cabrera will run more than the Zipperheads say. He was 15-for-15 in the minors and he’s 11-for-11 with the Padres (that’s over 35 games). The light is green. Rabbit, run.

  3. Dropped ichiro and picked up revere. he’s been hitting singles and stealing bags like I had hoped ichiro was going to. i’m happy now but what i really need is more happiness.

  5. I own Berry but it feels as if Leland would toss him under the bus at a moments notice. @sam- why would you drop Ichiro? he should have trade value in any league

  6. My kinda article! Acquiring Revere & Everth afforded me the oppty to trade Bourn for some legit power

  7. i did try to shop him around, though maybe not as hard as i should have. basically nobody wanted him–and I had picked him up off waivers originally after some other frustrated owner dropped him.

  8. i’m in a NFBC style mixed league this year where i literally forgot about steals on draft day. was sitting there looking at my team after it was over and was like, “… wait a minute… i drafted braun and granderson 1-2… and those are literally my only two 20-steal guys. hmm”

    but i picked up revere, everth and rajai davis and it’s cool now

    people are always yelling at you not to pay for saves, but i find it a lot less frustrating and more reliable to lock up 3 or 4 closers on draft day and then play the wire from a position of strength. steals, on the other hand, really are free. as long as you draft enough power to reserve a couple lineup slots for punchless rabbits, new ones always emerge during the season.

  9. Who exactly are the Zipperheads? I know who Walt Kowalski would think the Zipperheads are, but I don’t think this is the correct context for that.

  10. I took it to be those who rely on the Zips projections

  11. Haha I bet you are right. That is awesome; I have never heard “zipperheads” used in that context before, but I love it.

  12. I am in a league where none of the three are available. So Aoki, Blanco or Gomez? I am thinking the former, but your analysis appreciated.
