a) hits a 3rd grand slam
b) hits one out of the stadium
c) gets traded tot he Phils

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

and actually hadn't heard much about him lately so just went and checked his stats, not counting tonight his past week/month stats don't look half bad at all...

Week:
2HR 5RBI .368AVE in 19 ABs

Month:
16R 5HR 15RBI 3SB .337AVE in 86 ABs

throw in tonights and over the last week your looking at 4HR 13RBI .434AVE

not too bad at all as a sub OFer or a quality OF option in deeper leagues and according to yahoo's %'s hes only owned by about 16% of teams...

I remember Fernando Tatis hit two off the same Dodger pitcher in the same inning, I think it was Chan Ho Park.

It's not really out of nowhere, he was threatening to do this last year and got hurt for most of the season.
I've had him for a couple of months, he's been great.

He's been a top 10 OF for over the last month and there was a front page article dedicated to him on Yahoo!.....not really coming out of nowhere IMO.

Can't believe I traded him for Ankiel earlier in the season. :,-( Just couldn't see the playing time for him then. Always liked him, just tough for him to stay healthy.

I grabbed him in my 14-team mixed back on 6/28. I almost wrote a sleeper article on him a couple weeks ago but chose instead to go with Nyjer Morgan. At that point, Willingham had already been tearing it up for a couple weeks. I figured everyone had to have noticed. In fact, in the article, I called him "the resurgent Willingham." It wasn't until about a week later that someone informed me he was - and still is - massively underowned in Yahoo (I don't play Yahoo, so I couldn't check). Funny thing is that I asked around about Ludwick to see if he was a sleeper candidate and found out he was 80% owned. lol

Probably a bit late to write a sleeper article about Mr. Willingham now, eh? :*)

Agreed. When Quentin went down, I grabbed him immediately hoping to get half of my lost stats. I didn't think he'd put up almost all of them... ;-D
