I was looking at all the SLEEPER picks written about since the off season and thought that RDD15 deserved props for calling out Justin Upton on February 2nd. This kid (Upton) has blown away the sleeper status and become a star.
No other sleeper pick excites me except for two Rox that currently are still borderline valuable. I am a huge Ian Stewart fan but the BA have him on the bench where he still simmers as a sleeper. Also, Ubaldo Jimenez is putting up some nice number but at 6-9 there isn't anything of excitiement there until he puts a run together. I'll admit that he is getting poor run support.
Other sleepers are just recently added, like Prado and Morgan, and haven't been rated yet.
So props to RDD15 on the Upton pick. RDD15 also picked Stewart as a sleeper on January 19th.
(If I have a sleeper and write about him where do I send my piece?)
EDIT: daullaz posted Ryan Madson on June 9th and since then he has been bad (compared to pre-June 9 standards)...4.15 ERA, 13 ks, 7 bbs, 2 saves and only 2 holds.
