NEXT years biggest sleeper....

Postby WhosBabeRuth » Sun Sep 05, 2004 12:10 pm

Who do ya think?

My vote goes for Justin Morneau. He has roughly 200 At bats this year and 16 home runs. Give him 600 At bats as he will start, and your on pace for 48 home runs. Now thats gonna be a sleeper.

maybe it's just me, but if you're able to predict it THIS year, it's hardly a sleeper for next year....

Reminds me too much of Ensberg, small amount of at bats, huge potential. He was supposed to be this year "best sleeper 3bman", I dont think it turned out too well. He has potential but like any sleeper, its either go big or bust.

Difference being Ensberg's age versus Morneau. Morneau has much more upside. ;-D

Good sleeper list, covered just about all of the real good ones I think ;-)

And I agree that Morneau won't be a big sleeper at all next year. Might be in the same area at Tex was in this years draft. Morneau was a big sleeper this year if he got time, like he has been getting lately.

Closser's a nice sleeper with 20 HR power next year.

I'm sure there are some I missed (or people have differences of opinion on). Mainly went over rookies/injured guys & a couple starters that were great then went to hell.

I think Khalil Greene will be another guy that will be undervalued for next year -- he's still noted more for his defense than his bat. I think next year is the last year you'll still get him relatively cheap. Expect 20+ HR's.
