Derrek Lee and Andruw Jones arent really sleepers, just having monster seasons. Carlos Lee is a sleeper, unfairly to him, because he had a monster season with the White Sox last year. Figgins made a name for himself last season already filling in everywhere and anywhere. Other than that, its a good list.

If you want to add another RP, how about Roberto Hernandez?

Francoeur should probably be on there somewhere, and maybe Tony Clark as well.

Nice idea, though, and good execution!

Francoeur is on there, platooning in RF with Jonny Gomes.

Tony Clark is a nice choice. I forgot about him for a moment, but ultimately he probably would have missed the list because he's not exactly an everyday player.

Kinda desperate with those catchers, Doumit and Olivo haven't been tearing it up.

Chase Utley should prolly be there too.

Clark's been number-one for a while.

Many sleepers, almost by definition, won't open the season as a starter.

Chad Tracy is having a very good year under the radar, and can play the IF and OF corners.

Stats for the past month:

Ryan Doumit: .371, 2 HR, 13 RBI
Miguel Olivo: .305, 4 HR, 15 RBI, 2 SB

The only surprise about Cornelius is his lack of injury, so I guess he counts?

One month does not a season make.

Season stats:

Doumit 4-27-253
Olivo 9-33-205 (with a stellar 236 obp).

Ramon Castro is better than either of them.

Olivo was supposed to be a sleeper, but he was awful all year...only til he got traded has he been doing good.

Aug 31 2005 04:19 PM

Morgan Ensberg has been a heck of a sleeper....

He was good 2 years ago, but really fell of last year.

There was talk of him going back to the minors if he didnt start producing this year. Safe to say he's staying up.
