2009 Comeback players or impact rookies

Postby danidrag4 » Fri Oct 17, 2008 2:00 pm

Since the 2008 fantasy season is over it is time to start looking to 2009.

Who do you have as your early 2009 comeback players (ie guys who had a bad or less than expected 2008 or was hurt)

Also who are your leading canidates for Rookie of the Year?

And finally who are just some overall sleepers or players you have to have on your team? My goal is to try and get this as one of the most talked about posts on this site.

If price wins a starting role out of ST I could see him going 13-6, 160 k's in 160-180 innings pitched, 3.50 era, and 1.20 whip.

Might be good enough for 2009 ROY.

Gallardo and Liriano will be popular picks to put up big numbers after injury filled seasons.

What about:

Cano
V.Martinez

Thoughts on these two?

Prime bounce-back candidates. Both of them. Harang also, although to a smaller extent than Cano/Martinez.

Konerko will be extremely cheap come draft day. Not saying he'll bounce all the way back up to his consistant 40 hr days but he'll bounce back enough to out earn his draft position.

He could probably be drafted in ... what ... post 12th round? He was on many waiver wires this season.

I'd say Ryan Zimmerman. He had shown a few good flashes of power in September and once that torn labrum is repaired, Zim could post a fairly good season for wherever he's taken.
