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


fair enough...i guess i just disagree that he'll be worth anything. but point taken.

Oh I didn't say I'd be drafting him. ;-)

However, in leagues with tons of teams and/or large rosters could find the article beneficial and maybe worth the gamble. AL Only leagues would probably see Durazo drafted the most though (percentage wise).

If no one was thinking about Durazo and he has a chance to start, then I would assume he qualifies as a sleeper. Unless he is hot during ST, I won't touch him.

Why's everyone giving PWF such a hard time? Durazo is someone that's definitely under everyone's radar screen. There was a time that he was a pretty good masher, and he could very well have value to a fantasy team at some point this season.

If you think Durazo sucks and shouldn't be on the front page, write your own sleeper article! ;-D

Yeah, it's not a bad article. The whole point of sleepers is to find guys who are off everyone's radar, who will be available in the last few rounds of a draft (or at least, available for much less than their value is likely to be), who *might* be useful. Personally, I don't think Durazo is doing anything this year. But who knows... good to have a heads up that he'll be available this year, even though I'll immediately file him into the "still undraftable" category.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

i agree that durazo can be a sleeper in very deep leagues but i do think there are tons of other guys more worthy of a "sleeper article"

You know what they say:
