Does anyone think he will have an impact this year for the Reds?

If it smells like a sleeper, if it tastes like a sleeper, if it looks like a sleeper....it may be a sleeper ;-7

I think he will have an impact, but keep in mind in does pitch in a field whose nickname is "Coors Light"

I hope he does well since I just picked him off the waivers. He is ranked as the 23rd best SP on rotochamps.com ahead of clemens, maddux, and morris

I'd be careful about Acevedo. He has looked brilliant at times this spring, and has been hit hard at others. He and the other Reds starters appear to have much better control than they have shown in the past, so he might be worth a gamble if your league is pretty deep.

I picked him up in an NL only league, but I don't think he necessarily deserves to be drafted in a mixed league. Rotochamps ranks him 23rd among starting pitchers??? That sounds way too high to me.

ESPN ranks him as the 114th SP. I think he's closer to that. While he may be a sleeper, I think there are at least 50 or 60 guys I would draft ahead of him no matter what the circumstance.

If you actually believe that...can I be in your league?
