I really think the hype generated here in the CAFE lures some people into thinking if the player was good in the minors he will continue to be dominate in the bigs, it just doesnt work that way.I 've seen 2 this year with all the press ,Cueto and Sherzer, Cueto hasnt been anything to write home about Sherzer is still a ? Seems that rookies have very little impact in any of the major sports(basketball?)anyone want to add to this please, I need to be informed. The reason for this is I play a lot of teams on yahoo and everyone burned a ww pick on Sherzer last week and now evryone is dumping cueto
41/8 K/BB in 41 IP is nothing to write home about?
I play in 2 keeper leagues so I put quite a bit of premium on them but even in redraft leagues, with rookies, you are pretty much getting something for nothing. They can help you win leagues.
Plus it's a lot of fun to watch them grow up.
