Just joined Fantasy Baseball Cafe this morning, so I'm a bit behind on the sleeper of the week. I like Jhonny Peralta as a sleeper and would definitely pick him up in my league if I didn't already have Hanley Ramirez. Peralta's on-base percentage is up this year because he's walking more - on pace for 73 walks - and his slugging percentage is currently above .500; I think both of those factors are indicative of possible long-term success. I was really bothered by the first sentence of this article though:
"The shortstop position is much deeper than some may have anticipated, with the likes of J.J Hardy, Khalil Greene, and Alex Gonzalez joining the traditional powers to form a dearth of options."
If there is a dearth of solid offensive shortstops, then there are very few good shortstops, but that's not what Jamaal Gilbert is trying to argue.[/b]
