So what do you guys think? Will Peralta continue to hit this year or will this hot streak be the apex of his 2007 campaign?

I think he'll come around. I wish the dude could cut down on those K's then he'd be a beast.

Just joined Fantasy Baseball Cafe this morning, so I'm a bit behind on the sleeper of the week. I like Jhonny Peralta as a sleeper and would definitely pick him up in my league if I didn't already have Hanley Ramirez. Peralta's on-base percentage is up this year because he's walking more - on pace for 73 walks - and his slugging percentage is currently above .500; I think both of those factors are indicative of possible long-term success. I was really bothered by the first sentence of this article though:

"The shortstop position is much deeper than some may have anticipated, with the likes of J.J Hardy, Khalil Greene, and Alex Gonzalez joining the traditional powers to form a dearth of options."

If there is a dearth of solid offensive shortstops, then there are very few good shortstops, but that's not what Jamaal Gilbert is trying to argue.[/b]

This is Jamaal, and I apologize for a gross misuse of the English language, as I pride myself on not sucking in that department.

I'm just a fantasy baseball idiot though, so you know...

That mistake is excruciating, but thanks for pointing it out. No one said ANYTHING until now.

I'll make it up to you and the cafe by writing another good one this weekend. ARGH!!!

Thanks for the quick response, Jamaal. I meant no offense by my remark and really enjoyed your article overall. I just saw that mistake and thought I would point it out. That sort of thing happens to all of us baseball nerds ;-) Looking forward to your next update! Happy baseball.

I'll take a large chunk of blame there too. No clue how that got past me either. Welcome to the Cafe Logi and you've earned yourself an icon already for pointing out the error (which is now fixed). Thanks! ;-D
