heres a HUGE sleeper that everyone is forgetting

Postby MVPujols25 » Thu Feb 14, 2008 8:17 pm

I've done 2 mock drafts and in both of them Chris Carpenter was selected almost last. He is going to be ready to go by season start. He was nasty a few years ago but he got injured first game of the season last year. Look out for him cause he can be a good 16-17 rd pick maybe later

TJ surgery usually takes at least a year to recover from.
Carpenter could have some value during the last couple months of the season, but I wouldn't bank on anything.

really, I heard he'd be back by the start of season. I guess my source was unreliable... Better go release him of my team

The question is whether it's going to be before the All-Star break, after the All-Star break or somewhere in between


Somewhere in between before and after the all-star break must mean at the all-star break~.

I don't see him being ready early in the season. I also don't see them rushing him back if the team gets off to a slow start. He is certainly a good grab in the last few rounds and stash on the DL type guy.

He might be good for one month. And no, not everyone is forgetting him. I am wiling to bet that he gets drafted in all my leagues.

I would compare Carp this year to Pedro last year. I wouldn't bank on him for anything more than a couple of months. Not worth it in my opinion...

Yeah, don't count on much. We'll be double-digit games back by the ASB and they're not going to rush him; there's no reason to.

Patently undraftable except in deep leagues.

I can only hope he is drafted (by someone else) in all of my leagues, and at least four rounds too early.

burning a DL spot for months to get a couple months might be worth only if you have multiple DL spots. if you have just 1, forget about it. you will need that DL spot for one of your active players.
