Eugene, I had hopes as well for Lopez. I had only a few bucks to fill ss, and I bought him for 2. He looked awful early, and I was able to switch to Myles Straw. Straw is another disappointment who hasn't hit any better than Lopez, and no power either. But Straw is running some, 6 steals with 2 caught. Using the 40% for games played this year, if Straw gets to 8 by end of September that's a 20-steal regular season, and I'll be happy with that for cheap steals..

I had high hopes for Lopez this year.  Besides the hitting, he's 5-5 in caught stealing this season.  That's right.  He's only been caught.  No steals.

I know it's a small sample size, but I'm starting to wonder if his high averages in the minors won't translate to the majors.
