Make your vote for this years most underrated player(s)

Postby horatio » Fri Mar 21, 2008 1:24 pm

My vote goes for Raul Ibanez.

I've gotten him in the 16th round in both of my leagues. Maybe it's wishful since I now have him on two teams, but he strikes me as a virtual lock for .280 80 20 100.

John Maine. He had a bad post-ASB swoon, but the fact is that he's a young pitcher who's going a baller offense behind him and a huge pitcher's park. He should be going right around when Yovani Gallardo, Rich Hill, etc. get picked--but you can get him 2 rounds later.

Aaron Hill - I don't see why people are not very excited about him. If you cant get one of the top 3 2B guys why not wait until the last round and snag this guy up. Great value IMO.

good to hear that two of my players have already made this list (Maine and Ibanez)

Aside from them, I'd say Andruw Jones, also.

Based on a lot of the rankings and drafts I've seen, I'm going to say Jamie Shields. The leap he took in the last two years is nothing short of incredible. I think he can be this year's Haren if he refines his secondary pitches.

Also Zimmerman is going up the ladder for me very quickly showing little effects from the injured wrist. If the new park is even remotely more favorable to hitters then I can see him breaking out big time.

Zimmerman
Gonzalez
Francoeur
Cain
Hudson


Hudson is a great pick for his ADP imo...

Totally agree. I think few people realize how young he is, as well. I have ARod locked up in my keeper league, but I'm aiming to snag Zimm as my Utility.
