Who knows how to get pageviews better than me?  I mean, when people see the title Vernon Wells, 2012 Fantasy Sleeper they are bound to click on that.  Am I right, or am I right-right?!  Shoot, I imagine a lot of people will link to this article and before I know it I’ll have a castle made of all the pennies I earn from people reading this article then people will tour my penny castle in a bus and point out the room where I went mad waiting for Vernon Wells to actually hit.  Please, blog, may I have some more?
