Veteran outfielder Scott Podsednik has truly been one of the bigger surprises of the first four months of the fantasy season, entering Wednesday as the No. 6 outfielder on the ESPN Fantasy Player Rater. No, I'm not making that up, he's sixth! Podsednik, a 20th-round pick in ESPN average live drafts and 53rd among outfielders, is owned in 98.1 percent of ESPN standard (10-team) mixed leagues, certainly providing tremendous value with a .310 batting average and 30 stolen bases, the latter stat tied for third in baseball. Only Juan Pierre and Carl Crawford have more.
