Fantasy Baseball: Value Runs Options
So you missed out on Dustin Pedroia or Hanley Ramirez. There are still plenty of runs out there.
Elvis Andrus, SS, Texas Rangers
With his speed and Texas’ offense, he should cross the plate often.
Erick Aybar, SS, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Aybar scored 70 last year for the Halos, but I expect him to approach 90 runs in 2010.
Julio Borbon, OF, Texas Rangers
Everth Cabrera, SS, San Diego Padres
He has great speed, which should help him get into scoring position. It’s just a matter of who’s going to drive him in.
Chris Coghlan, OF, Florida Marlins
He should post a solid average and get driven in by Hanley Ramirez and Jorge Cantu.
Johnny Damon, OF, Detroit Tigers
Moving from the Yankees to the Tigers hurts a little, but he should still score a fair share of runs.
Alcides Escobar, SS, Milwaukee Brewers
Should score plenty of runs hitting at the top of a potent Brewers offense.
Nate McLouth, OF, Atlanta Braves
If McLouth can score 113 runs with the Pirates in 2008, he should be able to score 100+ with the Braves. He had 59 in 84 games with them last year, which extrapolates to 114 in a full season.
Nyjer Morgan, OF, Washington Nationals
Morgan is another former Pirates outfielder that should score in bunches this year.
Juan Pierre, OF, Chicago White Sox
Pierre should have plenty of scoring opportunities leading off the White Sox order. Scott Podsednik had 75 runs for them last year.
Placido Polanco, 2B/3B, Philadelphia Phillies
He gets on base meaning the Phillies boppers will drive him in.
Denard Span, OF, Minnesota Twins
He won’t give you a bunch of HRs, but he should contribute everywhere else. 100+ runs should be within reach.
Rickie Weeks, 2B, Milwaukee Brewers
As long as the wrist is healthy, he should score plenty this year. He had 87 and 89 in ’07 and ’08 and was on pace for 122 before the injury.
