I do believe that hours after I posted the Madson piece, Lidge was DLed and Madson was thrust in the closer role. His performance was bad, but it was nice to see his value shoot up so soon after I wrote it.
If you want to write some sleeper pieces (and we would love to have you), I need you to visit the Pencil and Paper forum and check out the Becoming a Writer thread.
Sleepers this year were Choo, Lind, and Adam Jones.

Hard to call Upton a sleeper given what he did last year. I'm sticking by my suggestion from a month ago, sell high if you can. Upton had a great hot streak but he is going to have cold streaks as well because he just swings at too many bad pitches and swings for the fences too much. His final season stats won't just be double what he did after 81 games imo.
