Tim Wakefield isnt usually that bad... You can get him around 15-18 rounds and hell get you in the high hundreds in the strike outs every year.

I am sure both of you will soon receive a verbal lashing from wreves on how Adam Dunn ruins your fantasy team very soon.

Adam Dunn is clearly a beter real life player than a fantasy player.

As faras sleepers, what about Braves reclimation projects like Thompson and Wright.

How about Joe Mauer? Or maybe rookies shouldn't be classified as sleepers.

I like the Hairston choice which brings up the question...what the hell are the Orioles going to do with Hairston AND Roberts?

I think KAZ will be like the other imports, going extremely high in drafts.

Green, Burrell, Dunn, all will drop alot in draft, but could reward.
Soriano is the best pitcher with little recognition. Eaton is worth a look. Chacon could be real nice.
BIG in your nl keeper, don't forget Jason Bay.

Kaz is a sleeper, but unlike Hideki -- will have a great impact immediately with his legs.

Kaz: .300 15 HR 85 RBI 30 SB. I'm guessing the Mets will bat him 2nd or 3rd. Got a nice looking offense on paper. Nice combo of speed and power.

I'd guess the lineup would be:
Reyes
Matsui
Floyd
Piazza
Mo (coming back?)
Cameron
Wigginton
Whomever is in RF (Cedeno?)

Yep, they will reward the owner who stayed away.
Do this ........................ for me .. :-)
When you get ready to draft them ... do one thing. Take one more look at your draft sheet and ask your self
"Self, is there anybody here with less risk?"
My guess, If you keep asking yourself that everytime you want to draft these two, some other fool will have allready. And your team will be "Healthier" for it ... IMHO. ;-)

Out of the three. I'd take Pat the Bat. You won't catch me near the other two before the 20th round ..... :-D

You are expecting quite a bit. Kaz is a gap hitter. 15 hrs in Shea? 85 rbis?
