shaun marcum is the guy ive gone after in every draft. reminds me of the situation when i stashed josh johnson...

i also really like jorge de la rosa but i know he's been pickin up steam and might be getting overdrafted.

JDLR isn't exactly a sleeper though. :D I don't think he's getting over drafted either, at least not in the leauges I've looked at.

Filthy Sanchez isn't exactly a sleeper, but I still think he's criminally under drafted in a lot of leagues.

Eveland is quietly putting up some very nice spring numbers for the Jays, and could be factor in their young rotation at some point. Wade LeBlanc is another guy I'll be keeping tabs on moving forward too.

Jeff Francis' ratios weren't even good in his 'good year'. Color me surprised if he does well this year.

Maholm. Remember when he was good? Me either. But he has been doing it.

I'm keeping an eye on him as well. Good K rates, manageable BB rates, induces more GB than FB, good contact rates, tosses absolute gas...the peripherals would suggest an above average pitcher. However, his 17.6% HR/FB, 67.1% strand rate, and .353 BABIP in the majors is, for lack of a better term, completely bonkers.

I still like Norris better, though.

Really? Dude is practically a caricature of a junkballing lefty. He could beat minor league hitters with his 85 mph fastball and 73 mph change, but it doesn't look like major leaguers were very fooled by his junk.
