Sean Burroughs is 24 years old... He was one of the best minor league players over the last ten years.. His power will eventually develop to 20+ a year.. He is NOT FAT, and does have very good baserunning skills.. That is why he will lead off for the Padres this year.. Within 3-4 years.. Sean Burroughs will be one of the top 3rd basemen in all of baseball.. (imho)
He is available in all drafts real late, and goes undrafted in most.. He is what a true sleeper is.. He has unlimited potential, and all you "So-Called Experts" Have written his career off..(sometimes players need a couple of years to develop in the Majors, regardless of how good they were in the minors, and in college) They all can't be Albert Pujols from day one..
Burroughs will have a very good year, and will continue to improve as the years go by.. This year .300 average and 15 HR's with 15 SB's and 75 RBI's and 90 Runs is very possible.. eventually Burroughs will win a batting title... Just not this year, or next..
Every year there are dozens of very good players who get overlooked, or written off for dead, because of the "What have you done for me lately" attitude.. Don't get caught up in '03 stats.. that is the only way to come away from the draft with several super sleeper picks.. (gotta think outside the box, because everyone knows the "Obviously Sleeper")
Just my point of view...
