Most Underrated Fantasy Player

Chone Figgins- He's put up very good numbers all year. But most importantly, I've been able to plug him all over my infield and outfield when I've had to juggle the lineup due to injuries and off-days. He's been indispensable and would be my Fantasy Team MVP if we win it this week. :-o
I could be wrong in what I'm saying but I'll be dead before I realize it.

Carlos Lee talent with Pete Rose hustle

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Hell yeah, nice pick. He's got it all: good average, power, and he walks a lot. ;-D ;-D

I second that one. Though he will not play SS next year, he is still very flexable and puts up solid #'s for a 2nd baseman.

One more HR and he will have back to back 40 HR seasons.


I'll buy the thought train that a guy who puts up 41 and 117 is a good fantasy player, but he's not up there with the bigtime mashers because

1) he's never scored 100 runs
2) this is the first year he's walked 70+ times
3) he's a 150-160 hits player and
4) he's a .275 hitter who's never had an OPS even borderline 0.900 (don't even think about 1.000).

I'll take 40-100 in the mid rounds of my draft, but he's not in the same group as many of the the other 35+ HR sluggers (Manny, Teixy, Pujols, A-Rod, Papi, etc.

Yeah, the Runs really hurts him, that's often overlooked, he's mostly a 2 category player, who's decent in 2 other categories. But he definitely can get you HR's and RBI's, which makes him a pick that fits the middle rounds. ;-D

What about Turnbow? Everyone loved his nuts when he first emerged and whatnot... but I didn't realize he had such good numbers.

btw, his #'s are:

1.83 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 60 K's, 64 IP, 35 Saves

Those are elite closer numbers... on a Brewers team that shows a lot of promise next year.
