AJ Pierz (move to chi-sox from pac-bell can only help)
Buck (good power and hopefully avg will improve :-o )
Hill AZ ( good park and it looks like he winning the spot)

I like Koyie too. ;-D

I even own him in a league where we have two catchers

good call :-)

I've been able to pick up AJ in 95% of my leagues in the last 5 rounds
he's in a good lineup in a great HR park and he already hits for good avg. his only downside is that he tends to piss off his pitchers

i think bonds was a factor, as well. ;-)

although he may not be a "sleeper", i think ramon hernandez will pu up numbers far exceeding his draft position.

also, i was very happy not drafting any catcher in both of my leagues until the last few rounds once everyone had one. i'd much rather spend a 20th round pick on someone who will put up 15th round numbers and get a stud OF early than spend a 5th round pick on someone who will put up 7th or 8th round numbers just because of position scarcity. i was able to get my guy (hernandez) in the 20th round of a 10-teamer i'm in because everyone else had a catcher by the 12th and i could just sit back and relax. :-)

I think Closser. He will be in Coors, and even at the end of last year, he was hitting the ball great on the road.
