Sleepers

Postby Lickitysplit131 » Wed Mar 05, 2008 7:04 pm

I have a draft in about 2 hours. I need some sleepers to look for in the late rounds. i have already compiled a decent sized list, but I need some backing on a few players.

Who are your slepers, and why?

1B
James Loney (Ryan Howard all over again?)
Ryan Garko
2B
Freddy Sanchez
Ty Wigginton
3B
Mark Reynolds
Hank Blalock
SS
Troy Tulowitzki (he seems to be going way later then he should)
OF
Hunter Pence
Garret Anderson
Jermaine Dye
Jack Cust
Andruw Jones
Josh Hamilton
Chris Duncan
Justin Upton(just because I got BJ late last year)

Anyone else have some good sleepers to throw on the list? Include some reasoning too don't just give me a list like I did lol

Loney isn't Howard

he will have a higher average and less home runs

I'll take the under in both cats. And I'm going to venture Loney never hits over 25 HR's...which would make him the anti-Howard.

Never say never. Players with far less power potential have hit 25 HR. For some reason his power seems good in MLB. Though small sample sizes, 06 and 07 he slugged over .500. His career MiLB SLG is .430. At this point 25 doesn't seem realistic but he is still very young.
