I got him off the FA list and played him for about two weeks before he got injured. I can't wait until he gets back to my lineup ;-D ;-D ;-D

I'd have to include Rodney on this list as well.

4-1 with 6 saves, 1.08 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and .133 BAA

Carlos Guillen deserves mention too since he was basically avoided by most. I got him as my starting SS in the 19th round (12-team league) after most teams already had picked up thier backup SS. He may not be elite at SS but he is a worthy starter in fantasy and wasn't drafted in many leagues.

How bout Cuddyer?

I added him on the list, He will be the Braves number 3 starter next year. It'll be nice to have him back in the club house

I didn't think Jim Thome would bounce back the way he has.

I did draft Papelbon and worked him in a deal to get David Ortiz.

Well Thome was drafted in decent rounds, I dont think we expected these numbers but it's not extremely off from what we thought he could do

Ryan Howard...I know he was expected to do great things but the dude's got 19 hr's and hitting nearly 300avg. with a good amount of rbi's.....also showing good patience at the plate. No one was expecting #'s this good
