I'm in a similar dilemma with Gardner. Ended up keeping him for $13 in an 8 team AL Only league which feels underwhelming. Seems like the Yankees will either have him bat leadoff or 9th (and use Ichiro/Jeter 1-2). Not sure if the difference in spots will affect how many SBs opportunities he'll get.

Are you in a week-to-week league or roto? If it's week-to-week, you can maybe afford to ignore SBs (especially if you have no other SB threats; you might lose SBs even with Gardner) and load up in the other categories.

How many teams are in your league? Since it's mixed league, you can probably find steals as the season goes on.
