See if you can guess who this is: After a move to a tougher league, he lowered his ERA by almost two full runs. His FIP was more than a half run lower than his overall ERA. His name is in the title of the post.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I went over Daniel Hudson for a 2011 fantasy sleeper in my head, then, frequent commenter and occasional contributor, Simply Fred caught my mind’s eye and stole my thoughts like we were in some straight-to-cable, sci-fi movie. I was wearing leather chaps, he was wearing a pith helmet.Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know the Sciosciapath on the top step of the dugout down there in the Los Angeles Suburb of Los Angeles? He loves these players. These Peter Bourjos players. I’d argue — or at least state, as I’m about to do — that he’d give one of ‘these players’ 500 plate appearances even if they’re hitting .220.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I have a confession, there’s no easy way to do these sleeper posts. A sleeper in a 15 team league is undraftable in a 10 team league. A sleeper in a 10 team league is muy obviousmente in a 15 team league.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yes, I will continue to call Brandon Allen a fantasy sleeper every year until he breaks out. I will also continue to say his name sounds like a furniture store. I’m just having a hard time writing off this mollywhooping, two-hundred and thirty-five pound behemoth that had an OBP of .405 in Triple-A last year.Please, blog, may I have some more?
If Sean Rodriguez didn’t have 2nd base eligibility, he wouldn’t get this 2011 fantasy sleeper post. Keep that in mind. I like him, but he doesn’t have a secure enough spot in the Rays’ plans to warrant his own post without that eligibility, which, of course, is much prettier at your middle infidel spot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Me no happy Ryan Raburn doesn’t have 2nd base eligibility across all formats. He missed starting 20 games at 2nd by two games. Deuces are wild. Or as they say in LA nightclubs, douches are wild. If Leyland wasn’t out having a smoke, Raburn would’ve got those last two games.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Alcides Escobar stole 42 bases in 52 attempts in only 109 games in Triple-A in 2009, so what the effin’ eff in the eff hole happened last year? How did he only steal 10 bases in 145 games? Did he mind-meld with Prince Fielder and think he had a four-hundred pound torso?Please, blog, may I have some more?
