In case you haven t caught on yet, the way I approach SAGNOF is one week I ll cover the saves portion of Saves/Steals Ain t Got No Face and the next week I ll cover the steals. Last week I highlighted a few very under-owned hitters who are getting SBs that are available in most leagues. Allow me a moment to flex by pointing out how the players from last week s article have performed since I wrote about them: Robbie Grossman: 16 AB, 4 runs, 1 HR, 1 SB, .429 OBP Austin Slater: 9 AB, 5 runs, 2 HRs, 4 RBI, 1 SB, .583 OBP Matt Duffy: 11 AB, 3 runs, 3 RBI, 1 SB, .385 OBP Brett Phillips: 16 AB, 2 runs, 2 RBI, 1 SB, .353 OBP. Tim Locastro, Gregory Polanco, and Sam Haggerty: Don t worry about it.
