The upside of an unknown entity, especially a young guy, is what makes him so hyped in fantasy circles. Polanco's grand slam today does NOTHING to change my mind about him.
Exactly, the fact that he was UNKNOWN makes it impossible to predict who the next UNKNOWN "phenom" will be. By "phenom" I mean player who happens to string together two to three good games to begin the season and thus shoots up the Yahoo rankings into the top 5. It is impossible to predict who it will be because the criteria includes being a relative UNKNOWN. This is a circular philosophical debate, so I will just stick to this mantra:
Ignore the UNKNOWN lucky phenoms and stick to the guys who you liked during your off-season research.
