quality Studs at a low price

Postby CadensDad » Fri Jun 02, 2006 4:53 pm

Feel free to add to or take away from this list.

All Undrafted or drafted very low team!

C-B.McCann (ATL) This guy saw very, very few drafts most of them where NL only leagues. (Yahoo says he was only drafted in 20% of all leagues) His power isn’t that great but his RBI is decent and his AVG is great.
Other Candidates-
Estrada (ARI)


1B- Swisher (OAK) As of right now he is the biggest bargain at 1B. No one saw these numbers at this stage in the year. I don’t think he will keep it up either. (Yahoo says he was drafted on average around the 17th round)

Other-
Thome (White Sox)
Tracy (ARI)

2B-Uggla (FLA) Dan is shocking a lot of fantasy guys. His numbers aren’t that great but considering he went undrafted all together and was a FA he is quite a easy steal.

Other-
Lopez (SEA)
Lowell (Bos)

3B- Blake (CLE) Casey was only drafted in 10% of all leagues and he wasn’t even considered a smart pick then. He stats aren’t the best but are pretty good. He has a nice avg with a few sb and puts up numbers in all of the 5 category’s.

Other-
Youkilis (Bos)
Wiggins (SF)

SS- Hanley Ramirez (FLA) WOW! that’s the only word to describe this kids skills. Undrafted in Yahoo leagues a pure stud and look’s like he could post up 50 SB with a above .300 AVG and 10-15 homers. A nice steal off the FA market.

Others-
Cabrera (LAA)
Vizquel (SF)

OF-Rios (TOR) Undrafted stud right now. Not a personal fan here but respect the numbers so far. A nice way to make your team climb in the rankings if you grabbed him when he first got hot. He looks serious and could be a big player for the rest of the year.

OF- Patterson (Bal) Another man who went undrafted for the main part. Easily on pace for 50 SB with 25 Homers

OF-Gomes (TB) He was drafted in most Yahoo leagues but not until the 16th round or so. He is proving to be a nice late round pick up and look’s to be a big time future stud.

Others-
Byrnes (ARI)
DYE (CHW)
Kearns (CIN)


SP- Mussina (NYY) One of the top pitchers in the league and no signs of slowing down. Drafted on average in the 15th round and is playing like a 2nd round stud. I could see him contending for the Cy Young this year at this rate and I hope he does.

Sp-Glavine (NYM) Wasn’t drafted much and if he was it was rounds 16 and later. Has came back to his old ways of just pitching solid baseball. He was grabbed up on FA after his 1st start in most leagues and the owners are loving it from him to.

RP-Papelbon (BOS) WOW! Undrafted from top to bottom. When Bos made that call to the bullpen and Papelbon came out the free agent list went crazy with Papelbon being snatched up like crazy. He has proved to be a STUD and look’s to be the new full time closer for BOS.

RP- Gordon (PHI) Yes he was drafted around the 13th round in most leagues. But no one and I mean NO ONE could see numbers like this from him. Very nice CP to have got your hands on and could be the best in the league.

P- Arroyo (CIN) Boston fans are missing him already. We all knew he’d be a big time player one day. But no one thought it’d be the week after he left Boston. He has ice numbers across the board and went undrafted for the main part of it. He was seen in a few drafts but went in the 17th round and below

Others-
Harang (CIN)
Verlander (Det)
Rogers(Det)
Baez (LAD)

Webb was taken as high as the 7th round in some drafts, kinda surprised me. I saw him go around 10 in some of mine.

Nomar was drafted in every league and in most leagues went in a decent round. His numbers arent that great considering where he was drafted.


Lowe isn't that great. his numbers as of late are better than what they where but they still aren't that great.

McCann was very underrated coming in. I've been saying for a few months now, he's the best C in the NL. He's hurt at the moment, and impatient owners may have dropped him. Don't waste time adding him.

I just got an email with the same subject line as this thread...maybe I'll check it out and see if it has to do with fantasy baseball.
