I think he has a '09 Greinke like breakout season and the big debate becomes whether or not a player on a crappy team should win Cy.


I could see Garza getting traded mid-season to a contender ;-D

As for more should have seen that coming

Hanley Ramirez, enough said

Kendrys Morales, way undervalued

Max Scherzer <- completely agree

I'm selling on Lind .... he's been essentially the worst 1B in baseball the last 2 years. Seriously though .....check out E5's 2nd half stats last year. I see the exact same confidence when he's at the plate this spring.

Adam Dunn. You'll regret not buying him super cheap.

I was laughed at in one of my more friendly money leagues for taking Ellsbury in the 8th round of 12-teamer last year. Man I wish I could find that guy again this year.

Last year I was laughed at for rejecting a trade which centered around Ryan Howard for my Jacoby Ellsbury. He also wanted a closer, I think. The guy was amazed I wasn't interested. I just stumbled on the eMail a couple weeks ago, funny stuff. I only ended up middle of the pack though which I fully blame on my third round pick Adam Dunn.

I do think if anyone has a surprisingly huge season it will be Delmon Young. If he hit .320 with 35 bombs I wouldn't blink an eye. I also think Neil Walker has an outside shot at 30 home runs and 100 RBI. And one more player I'll throw out there for a potential 25 HR, 25 SB, 100 RBI season out of nowhere: Alexei Ramirez.

Chances either of those 3 things happen: about 0.1%. Buy hey who knows. That's why this game is fun, anything can happen. Brady Anderson hit 50 home runs one year didn't he


You wouldn't blink an eye if a guy that has only cleared the 13 HR mark in a single season once and has never had an ISO over .195 hit 35 homers? I would blink so hard that my forehead would crash down and break my jawbone.
