Scott Baker is a post-hype sleeper. He was a huge prospect two seasons ago. Never had great control and was hurt by the long ball. He just needed more time in AAA to get sorted out. Of course, one of my league mates was able to pick him up after I was forced to drop him...

In that thread, I also gave high, high praise to Scott Baker and Justin Duchscherer.

To which someone replied, "Look I don't know of his prediction last year, but what I do know is that he just said that he was considering Scott baker as a "Super Super Sleeper". Scott Baker??? Scott Baker just does not cut it. Shaun Marcum had a solid year last year, a late round flier type. But Baker???"

Anyway, not looking for a pat on the back. Just wanted to affirm that his breakout is indeed real.

I wish I knew of your insane prognostic capabilities before this season... :,-(

That someone obviously wasn't paying attention to Baker's last few months of the 2007 season. Good old off-the-cuff reaction to a (formerly) 5th starter on the Twins.
