Max Scherzer has been almost exactly the same pitcher the last three years. He pitches around a 3.75 xFIP then fights Nazis in the offseason. (He sure is limber for being thousands of years old, made of mud and having two different color eyes!) I say almost because his strikeout rate fell a tad in 2011, but nothing that I’m worried about.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brad Peacock isn’t even ranked in the top 150 starters for CBS. Then again they have Javier Vazquez ranked 47th overall and he retired, so there’s that. Here’s what I said when he was traded to the A’s, “Peacock had a great season in Double- and Triple-A last year, putting up a 2.39 ERA and a 177/47 K/BB line.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Look at you getting two posts today, which we will continue until next October. It’s an exciting time to be alive. Kinda like in the 1300′s when doorknobs were invented and people no longer needed to axe down the door to enter their house.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I, Albert Lang, have been a Kelly Johnson fan, for no real reason, for some time now. I seem to be the only one. ESPN has him in the 200s, and his ADP is at 253. Certainly his 2011 (.222/.304/.413) did nothing to engender him to fantasy players, but I think this just makes him a steal for 2012.Please, blog, may I have some more?
No, they don’t refer to these Nolan Reimold-types as being “Grey’s stubborn and unable to let go of past” sleepers. No, I’m not just recycling posts from 2009. Though how about that Garrett Atkins?! These players are post-hype sleepers, y’all!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is ridiculous. Brandon Morrow has been a sleeper for me going on three years. I realize this. Hence my pointing-it-out’ing. Here’s what I have to ask myself. Is he just another Ricky Nolasco? A guy that consistently has an ERA higher than his xFIP and you should just ignore?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ll give you a little insight into my writing these posts. I write the majority of them in October and November. Baseball’s slow then and it gives me time to backlog. I tell you this because I want to be clear that when I wrote this post Alex Presley was a sleeper with everyday playing time coming his way in five months.Please, blog, may I have some more?
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?
Ugh. I hate Alex Rios. It hurts me soul, Lupe Fiasco, to write this post. Unfortch, I gotta point out Alex Rios because of his terrible 2011 has made him underrated. I’m just going to write the rest of this post and then pretend like it never happened if he disappoints again.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Peter Bourjos was one of my sleeper picks last year, so here we are doing our fantasy baseball 2012 sleeper posts with more of the same? Yawn! Hey, Random Italicized Voice, yawning and sleepers go hand in hand. I’m going to ignore you said that.Please, blog, may I have some more?
