With ace-of-the-staff years dating back to 2002, Roy Halladay was the franchise.  Well, the Blue Jays front office gave the Blue Jays fans the kanye shrug.  While most pitchers go from good to great or great to mindblowing in the NL, Halladay will have to deal with Citizens Bank.  Please, blog, may I have some more?

Sometimes guys are so obviously sleepers that it makes them overrated and consequently sleeper sells.  This happened in last year’s preseason to Chris Davis.  By the time we’re all drafting in 2010, Jay Bruce may fall into that category.  I tend to think he won’t because he was clearly terrible last year when you look at his surface numbers.  Please, blog, may I have some more?
