The deepest sleeper of all...

Postby WittyC » Thu Feb 16, 2006 3:28 am

Poor Terry Tiffee of Minnesota has the lowest O-Rank of any player listed by Yahoo! at #948. He just edged out veteren Cardinal backstop Gary Bennett as well as former Detroit's Vance Wilson, a former 44th round pick of the New York Metropolitans.

Who's the lowest-rated pitcher you ask? Well, that distinction belongs to San Diego's Dewon Brazelton, whose 7.61 ERA and 2.07 WHIP while playing for Tampa Bay last year did not impress the experts at Yahoo! He came in at #945, just ahead of Zach "Tomorrow's Always Another" Day of Colorado and Kansas City's Leo Nunez.

There will be several call-ups in the league this season which could threaten Terry's stranglehold on that fabled last position, rumor has it that he's been working with day and night with LA's Adrian Beltre to learn how to regress even further.

Day was a great prospect at one point, pitched well before injury. Brazelton was a highly touted prospect who just never lived up (or even close to) expectations.Tiffe is actually not a bad player at all, I am surprised hes the lowest.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Dewon is due for a big year. Or, at least a year when he doesn't shoot himself.

He'll probably be working out of the pen, at least to start the season.
