In that thread, I also gave high, high praise to Scott Baker and Justin Duchscherer.

To which someone replied, "Look I don't know of his prediction last year, but what I do know is that he just said that he was considering Scott baker as a "Super Super Sleeper". Scott Baker??? Scott Baker just does not cut it. Shaun Marcum had a solid year last year, a late round flier type. But Baker???"

Anyway, not looking for a pat on the back. Just wanted to affirm that his breakout is indeed real.

I wish I knew of your insane prognostic capabilities before this season... :,-(

That someone obviously wasn't paying attention to Baker's last few months of the 2007 season. Good old off-the-cuff reaction to a (formerly) 5th starter on the Twins.
