Jason Bay. Most were afraid of this guy in the drafts I participated in and now he is back to his old self as a consistent player across the board.

I'd also like to throw in Randy Winn. He is not an electric player, but he is very consistent and a great 3rd or 4th outfielder option.

Jason Bay is quietly having a solid season, on pace for around .290/ 35 HR/120 runs/80 rbi/13 SB

I'm sure the RBI's will come, looks like he's back to 2006 form

Adrian Gonzalez by far. .299avg, 17HR's, and 55RBI's and he doesn't get much love from anyone.

Edinson Volquez...

HE IS FOR REAL PEOPLE!!! Cincinnati wouldn't have traded Josh "The Natural" Hamilton if they didn't know that they were getting a top-tier talent in return.

Wainwright was a good one to mention, but the one that really gets me is Milton Bradley.

I keep hearing people say "I just picked him up and..."

Wait a second. You JUST PICKED UP the AL OPS leader? In June???

I know his history, but damn. The guy is crushing the ball. He belongs on rosters at least.

Well, it seems like people are still 50/50 if this guy is for real or not... I have seen posts in which saying that he should be dealt before he shows his true colors.

And so far this year, he has only shown quality outings. I agree, he will not keep every team under 2 ER's, but he has the making of a superstar for years to come.

No way Volquez is unappreciated. He's on my squad and I appreciate him so much that i'm not trading him for anybody. I'm gonna throw in a closer and say Brandon Lyon. A lot of people thought he would be an awful closer and wouldn't make it past May as Arizona's closer, but he's proven those people wrong and is putting together good numbers. For hitter's i'm gonna say David Murphy. He's been really solid while guys like McClouth, Xavier Nady and Ryan Ludwick have gotten all the attention.

We're talking about the view of the whole forum community here, not just yours. Hell, I love Volquez too. He keeps my ratios to the down-low and the backbone of my pitching staff for now.

This thread begins and ends with George Sherrill! 20 saves on the season and you probably got him with a very late pick if other people forgot about him in the draft. I know I did in some leagues ;-D
