19:00 mark, Fantasy Focus

I just don't get Karabell here. Something along the lines "A lot of people in the fantasy world think speed ages better than power". Maybe players who rely on speed age as baseball players better than those who rely on power, but speed stats (SB,3B) don't age better than power stats (HR,2B). We know that SBs tend to fall off a cliff for guys who average(d) 20+ SBs right where Aoki, Bourn, Rios are in age. http://www.fangraphs...curve-depicted/
We don't know exactly when it'll happen. But the precipice is close. (Whereas, Revere is at the peak of the SB aging curve.)

Stephania Bell- Yes, his early hammy discomfort is a red flag due to age and previous injury/procedures.

No thanks.

He's been going late for good enough value but if the hammy is gonna flare up then I'll pass.

Hamstring surgery. No steal attempts in spring. Hamstring issues again in spring. Pass.

On top of already being awful at stealing bases last year. Speed guys fall off quick. Look at Figgins. Bourn is closing to having his fantasy funeral.

They said it's precautionary so I wouldn't jump the gun on a DL stint yet.

Hamilton reporting that Bourn could get back in the lineup tomorrow. He's been running on the treadmill. Strictly precautionary as to why he left yesterday.
