If we could help you out, they wouldn't be much of a sleeper, eh?

I kind of like Benson.

I am not really into him, but if he's around in the last round I might take him. I think Mazzone could do with him like he did with Wright and Cruz.

He has my attention, lets just say that.

Odalis Perez has my attention as well. Since becoming a full time SP he has had a trend of good year followed by a bad year and last year was a bad year...

A few sleeper pitchers? Hmm.... :-?

How about Oliver Perez? He is reportedly in good shape this year, as he learned his lesson last year with the skipping of winter ball. He'll bounce back, and could potentially have a season much like '04.

How about Jeremy Bonderman? For some reason, this guy gets no respect. Rememeber how young he still is. Pitches in a nice park, and could also bounce back nicely.

May not be sleepers in the traditional sense, but these guys can be had late and provide a tremendous reward.

I guess you weren't here last offseason. Bonderman got all kinds of love.

Matt Cain.

I think this kid is the real deal. The Giants have the run support now with Barry back and I think Cain can get the job done. Even though he's their #4 starter, I think he'll put up decent numbers to be a 4 or 5 fantasy starter.

Along those lines, I'm going to give a big shout out to my man Noah Lowry. Both his k/9 and k:bb last year (7.58 and 2.26 respectively) were notable. Now going into his 3 season and after an amazing 2nd half (check his splits) I think you can get him relatively cheap....hence sleeper.

On a side note I'm hesitant on rookies, especially those with less than 50 ip in the bigs. I'm not saying in 2-3 years he won't be the man, I'm just not going to play those card in 2006.

I just picked Shawn Chacon with a late round draft pick. He put up some pretty nice numbers, since joining the Yankees.

Maybe Bonderman is getting some criticism as a pick because both his Kd9 and WHIP regressed last season and his numbers generally blew?

Oliver Perez was a HUGE bust last season. Noone knows what to expect and as such he has fallen into the deep recesses of most draft boards. He could bounce back...or maybe he was just a one year fluke.
