That's an example of someone trying to sell high and aiming far too low. What did they think...that Shelton was suddenly going to become a .260 hitter with 20hr power?

This would make him Sheffield, when in reality Shelton is more like Craig Wilson. 25 HR's and a .280 AVG at best, is what Shelton hits this season.
Shelton is already sitting on 9 HR. I think that he'll hit more than 16 the rest of the year.

The upside of an unknown entity, especially a young guy, is what makes him so hyped in fantasy circles. Polanco's grand slam today does NOTHING to change my mind about him.
Exactly, the fact that he was UNKNOWN makes it impossible to predict who the next UNKNOWN "phenom" will be. By "phenom" I mean player who happens to string together two to three good games to begin the season and thus shoots up the Yahoo rankings into the top 5. It is impossible to predict who it will be because the criteria includes being a relative UNKNOWN. This is a circular philosophical debate, so I will just stick to this mantra:
Ignore the UNKNOWN lucky phenoms and stick to the guys who you liked during your off-season research.

Though I hope he does well since I have him in a deep league.
I actually think Garrett Jones is going to have a nice year, so I don't think he'll Bonifellatio...

Marcum's only real big question mark has been his health. He was a great pitcher in 08.
