And since when has batting average counted? Especially in Oakland!

A's offense has been upgraded considerably.
A's bullpen has been upgraded tremendously.
now, if haren pitches good enough to make it on a "draftable sleeper pitcher" list...how does this equate to marginal win totals; with a large upgrade to an offense that was able to lead the A's to 91 victories a season ago?
and for the record i would hardly call haren a K pitcher anyway...
his minor league K #'s were strong at 8.77 but converting that number to the majors puts him just about where he is now with a career k/9 at 5.69
based off that #, if he averages 5-6 innings over the course of the year, you'll get roughly 3K's/game. (3 being "high" adding in potential/progression)
If we wanted to find some real K sleepers we could do alot better than haren.
Haren is more aptly a "win" sleeper than a "K" sleeper.
Upgraded considerably? No. Seattle considerably upgraded their offense. I like Kendall and Kotsay, but it's not that much of an improvement.
