interesting list...


yeah...unfortunately i had Part 1 and Part 2 on my roster last year in the inaugural draft of our deep keeper league. lets hope.

Not bad. ;-D

I don't think that Crosby will come anywhere close to replacing Tejada though. We'll see. ;-)

Your "list" is ok but you "used" way too many "quotations" when explaining each "player".

:-b

BTW: Cabrera and Crosby aren't sleepers, they're going fairly early. And Todd Walker is a bench warmer as of now. Could change, but they signed Grudz to a new contract so Walker won't get a lot of AB like last season and he's in a worse lineup.

Milton with a 3.50 era, and 17 to 20 wins? Rather large projectons for a guy who's best era was 4.32, and has won over 13 once.

Personally I don't think he'll be all that good, but career highs are possible. He in in the NL now and doesn't face a DH, and also has a much better offense. I still won't draft him though.
