Possible sleeper next year? I wouldn't mind taking him in the 9th or 10th round.

True, but think about how Glaus was hitting at the beginning of this year after his eye surgery.

I'm predicting a Glaus-like resurgence.

Shame I already have Sori. I would love to nab Boone as a value pick next year.

I would say Bret Boone makes a nice sleeper next year considering the upside he has displayed and the numbers he's put up this year being so poor that his value will be poor. However, I still feel Marcus Giles will make the better 2B to have next year, since he missed so much time with a broken collarbone and still will finish at .300. Next year, he could go for 25 HRs, .320, 110 Runs, 20 steals.

I'm still going to avoid him next year. I think he's done. Toast. Out of gas. However you want to put it. I really didn't think he'd be this bad this year, but I did trade him away for Kent last offseason in one of my keeper leagues since I felt like his days were numbered.
