In my book, a sleeper should be someone that most people are not generally aware, not guys like Morneau and Upton who practically everyone who plays fantasy baseball think will be valuable players next year. For example, this year it would have been guys like Burnitz, Cordero, or Carpenter, who either were not on people's radar screen or where deemed to be damaged goods but have provided good value. It is finding guys who are undervalued, not pointing to top 20 prospects that everyone knows about.


I agree with you. Sleepers should currently be unowned or perhaps owned by fewer than 25% of fantasy owners, not top prospects that have already been picked up.

you guys have goo lists.. but theres still one more month to go..

anyways i say MIGUEL OLIVO STILL HAS IT. he can swipe some bags too.. not too shabby for a fantasy catcher. he can be your next 15-10 backstop. :-b
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Where the heck is Mark Teahen i know he will be playing for a crappy team but he has been tearing up triple A and second off a good sleeper pick for next year could be Wil Ledezma, he has been pitching great this season although he will be moved to the bullpen for the remaineder of the year to save his arm but he will be a great sleeper for next year

I think Piniero is a good sleeper next year. Sort of like in a Glavine or Konerko type of way in that you know he's good, but injuries, playing on a bad team, or simply an off year MAY leave a guy like him undrafted. Konerko didn't get drafted in my league, so I pick him up before the season starts and boom. Career year...

you know, everybody says Teixera round, but I'm not so sure-mostly because he plays at 1B. where do you take him-ahead of Casey? Huff?

I am as high on Morneau as anyone, but 1B is loaded.

If Morneau is going in round 8 in mixed drafts then we should all have fun next season playing against these clowns.

The ultimate sleeper next season -- Rick Ankiel.

I think the one guy that hasn't had any mention here is Jason (hate to say it) Giambi. Coming off this year, he'll go dirt cheap, probably at least 17th round, and will have a 20+ HR, 85 RBI season. Another guy has gets no love is Eric Byrnes in Oaktown. Good hitter, plus speed, and plus power also. 20-25 HR, 75 RBI, 15-20 SB, .290 BA

I think Giambi will again be overrated. The guy hasn't hit over .250 in 2 seasons (unfortunate about the illness, but that's a fact).

20-25 HR 85 RBI sounds like Eric Karros in this Dodger days. I think there are quite a few 1B with those type #'s or better.

If he's going 17th round (which I don't think he will), then yes he'd be a nice gamble.
