My breakout player this year will have to be Wil Ledezma. He's a Rule 5 pick up by the Tigers, and they are extremely high on him. I would bet a campaign of 12-14 wins, with a 3.95 era, and a 1.25 whip and he will fly under everybody's radar in AL only drafts....

I'd take those numbers in a deep mixed league. :-)

Well, I am actually higher on Ledezma than Bonderman. I think Bonderman is still getting hype from the Oakland trade that landed him in Detroit. Ledezma will be the better P

Weaver? You would compare Javier Vazquez to Jeff Weaver? Oh, no, you di'n't! Come on, he already has so many more 200 K seasons than Weaver, it's undefined. ;-)

I don't know. Look at these stats from the Bonderman's second half: 3.70 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 85 K's in 90 innings. His last month was even better, with a 2.53, 1.05 and 42 in 42.2. The kid is getting it.

I am not buying the Ledezma hype either. He had one good season in AA last season, his first real taste of success, and did very little in the few starts he had in the majors. He may be good one day, but I highly doubt whether it will be next season.
