Biggest surprise?

Postby CadensDad » Wed Apr 11, 2007 3:57 pm

There are a few others with better numbers but most of these guys are in the top 50 and most of them didn't get drafted or was drafted in last 2-3 rounds of most 12 team leagues. Just wondering who everyone thought has been the biggest surprise so far?

Akinori Iwamura

Very impressed so far,

Kaz Matsui was my 2nd pick

I thought Iwamura would be a good player overall. It was between targeting MCab,Chad Tracy and him for me. All were good picks relative to ADP imo.

Hudson and Kinsler were my 2B guys, Hudson is hot but, preseason I expected top six 2B value from him.

Byrnes has shown he can hit for power and run, a little hot streak in a hitters park isn't surprising to me.

Granderson was high on my list for 4th OFer. He hasn't stolen enough bases to surprise.

I drafted Jacobs with my last pick last year in 12 teamers. Now he does this :-°

Everyone has expected Upton to do something sometime in this season or next, shouldn't be him unless he goes 25/40.

For me Geoff is the surprise, but then again who has ever been as streaky as this guy.

Really none of them are surprises to me.

lol, this is how my "read your posts" reads:
