Names to Know?

Postby Rookies » Mon Mar 14, 2005 7:55 pm

Not the obvious stars or the deep sleeper candidates.

Who are the five players who will make your draft that perhaps your opponents are undervaluing or ignoring?
Don't try to strike everyone out. Strikeouts are boring besides that they're fascist. Throw some ground balls it's more democratic. - Crash Davis

Adam Eaton (SDG)- Ready to breakout this year. Cheap source of K's

Jerome Williams(SFO)- Has got electric stuff, and is a potential 15 game winner

Dmitri Young(DET)- Many people forgot about this slugger, but hes back and should post up solid numbers

Brian Giles(SDG)-Return back to his old STUD fantasy numbers, should be quite good.

Mike Adams(MIL)- Brewers closer, has a good arm and should put up good save numbers..I mean Kolb got 39 saves, why cant he?

How is Sheff a steal? He is going 2nd round in most drafts.

I got him in the 3rd round of the Cafe Challenge and I have him ranked #8 overall. If you can get top 8 value in the late 2nd/early 3rd round you're doing pretty good.

Jeremy Bonderman - K rate is great for someone you can pick up after the 10th round.

Dave Roberts - Leadoff and finally going to play a whole season, could swipe you 50 bags and pick him up some where near the 13th.

Dmitri Young - Way overlooked in most drafts, I got this guy in the 19th in one draft!!!! Back and healthy could put up pretty impressive stats.

Jeremy Reed - There are a bunch of good OF out there, but this guy could really help you out if he runs, if not hitting between Ichiro and Beltre he should score some runs!!

Luis Castillo - Not the greatest second basemen in the world, but might still get you 30 steals!!!

Richard Hidalgo - Streaky hitter, but playing in Texas he could have a few more hot streaks than cold ones this year.

Mike Gonzalez - Has been going earlier than I think he is worth, but don't underestimate the value of MR, see Aknori Otsuka

Woody Wiliams - The move from STL to SDP can't hurt and he put up decent numbers last year, overlooked for his value.

*sorry more than 5 but hey I talk alot.

;-D

after seeing where dotel's gone in my drafts thus far, i'm really starting to wish i'd not taken krod in the 4th and looked for dotel 3-4 rounds later. >_<

also, i'd add renteria, carlos lee, and eric chavez to that list. and javy vazquez.

I have been big on Pineiro for years, but he is still sore in his shoulder after throwing, won't be 100% on opening day, and don't know when he will be. If he isn't healthy :-o
