You say Alcides Escobar, I say Jean Segura…Let's call the whole thing off! That's you and the co-owner of your fantasy team right before your eyes lock after twelve years of friendship and things suddenly get weird. "Doode, you have nacho cheese on your lip and it's in a tear drop shape." "What?" "Nothing. Wanna play touch football? Our team needs a tight end." On a side-sidenote, doesn't Jean Segura sound like an actor from the 1950's? I imagine him lurking in the shadows of Vienna's back alleys. Jean Segura is...The Third Man!... with Joseph Cotten and Ryan Raburn. "Between Switzerland and Milwaukee, they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock and Miller beer." That's Dead Orson Welles schooling you as he waits in line for Zsa Zsa Gabor. "Is she coming or what?!" That's still Dead Orson Welles. Okay, enough hullabaloney, Segura just missed the cutoff of 150 major league ABs for a 2013 fantasy baseball rookie post, so here he is as a sleeper. Indeed, because I'm yawning. Thanks, Random Italicized Voice. What if I told you Segura once stole 50 bases in the minors? Does that hold your interest? Are you still talking to me? No, I'm talking to everyone. Sure, that was in A-Ball, but guys don't just steal 50 bases for s's and g's if they're slow as dog balls. Also, he stole 37 bases last year in the minors in about two-thirds of a season. Add an extra third and you have 50+ steals, and don't even get me started with what he can do with that extra leftover 1%. Have your interest piqued now? I'm still drowsy, but go ahead. Ugh. So what can we expect of Jean Segura in 2013 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?The post Jean Segura, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper appeared first on Fantasy Baseball Blog at Razzball.com.
