Erubiel Durazo is Sleeper of the week?

Postby Y`s Guy » Mon Feb 12, 2007 11:57 pm

:-X

Holy smokes!

Last I read he was selling newspapers in Oixaca at the corner of Las Mejas and Quinones.

In all seriousness...if he did come back then Bud Selig has a guy to string up as another steroid poster boy.

Erubiel Durazo???I think Mr. Chen has a better shot as a sleeper than Erubiel. ;-D

Apparently he hit the snot out of the ball this Winter and is in great shape. It will be a battle between him and Johnson in the spring. Should be interesting to watch.

shhh. That's only for me to know ;-) the next 80sb threat

In all seriousness, his competition isn't great and he has always been a good hitter.

Even if the steroid argument stands. Bonds and Giambi hit alright last year.

I seem to recall Erubiel Durazo being a sleeper sometime in 2002 or 2003. It's not in the archives, so maybe it was at a different site. Seriously, he didn't make an impact then, and he won't make an impact now. I wouldn't worry about him if I were you.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

Even in a 16-team league where we start 14 offensive players, meaning there are 224 offensive starters, I'm not even entertaining the idea of offering him $1.

There are too many ifs surrounding Durazo before I can insert him into the sleeper category. Will he prove healthy? Will he make the roster? Will he have a spot to play with Johnson and Piazza already there?

I just don't see Durazo doing anything in 2007.

yes, thats okay, but i am just thinking of the poor newb who reaches for durazo in the 4th round thinking the cafe know something he doesn't.

i also think it makes the cafe look kinda bad. i mean, if i came to the site and saw erubiel durazo as the sleeper for 2007 id keep on surfing. good for us to keep it our secret, bad for the cafe.

Doesn't make the Cafe look bad at all. Not everyone who plays fantasy baseball plays standard Yahoo leagues with standard Yahoo settings.

If that poor noob cannot read "Make Durazo your final pick", then he brought it upon himself. :-b
