Just because you’ve slipped behind in the Stolen Base category doesn’t mean you can’t catch up.  Here are some reasonably available SB threats.

Scott Podsednik, OF, Chicago White Sox – Pods makes a triumphant return to the pool with 3 SBs last week while hitting .250 (6 for 24) with 5 Runs and 2 RBIs.  On the year he’s hitting .295 with 21 SBs, 59 Runs, 4 HRs, and 38 RBIs.  He’s owned in 44% of Yahoo! Plus, 20% of Yahoo! Public, 16.5% of ESPN, and 36% of CBS leagues.

Julio Borbon, OF, Texas Rangers – Borbon makes the list again after swiping 3 bases last week while hitting .438 (7 for 16) with 5 Runs, 1 HR, and 4 RBIs.  His 3 SBs came in one game, two games after swiping 4 in a game.  It’s all or nothing for Borbon, but the potential is there.  On the year he’s hitting .432 with 8 SBs, 10 Runs, 1 HR, and 7 RBIs.  He’s owned in 31% of Yahoo! Plus, 10% of Yahoo! Public, 4.2% of ESPN, and 26% of CBS leagues.
