I need starting pitching.......who are the real sleepers?

A guy who doesn't get a lot of respect is D. Willis. He's looked good this spring and is still very young. I think he'll rebound to an ERA in the mid-3's, 15 wins, and 150-160 Ks (in a pitcher's park and good offense behind him).

Really? Just curious as to why you say that.

He doesn't have a good k rate (around 5/9) and gives up the long ball too frequently for my tastes (1.2/9). I had him at about 10-7, 4.1 ERA, 1.3 WHIP, 100Ks this year.

I thought it was notable that he went 7-2 with a 3.15 era after the All-Star break and had a 1.48 era over the last six starts. It's also a pitchers park and he only signed a one-year deal so its his contract year again. Put all those together and it could equal another good year.

Derek Lowe should be available. And he should be great.

Absolutely. I've been waiting for the moment he gets a rotation spot to pounce. I think he's about the best guy available who doesn't have a rotation spot now, but could get one later in the season. Foppert is the real deal and in a pitcher's park on a good team.

Just wondering why you think that?

Not sure if he counts as a sleeper, but see if Noah Lowry (San Fran) is available.
