I know he's having a bad game today, but what an awesome surprise this guy has been. I picked him up of waivers earlier in the season and now, after i traded kendall, he's my starter.

I think there have been about 20 topics about him in the last 5 days. Yeah, hes having a good year, yea I predicted him to hit .300 (in the cleveland forum here), everyone knows.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

yeah dude, i actually dropped kendell for him. i didn't want to, but i realized he was still on the wire and a trade with kendell was going to take until sunday - and i didn't trust him to stay that long.

he's a stud.

Hey, when a guy who was not drafted in most mixed leagues has the most RBIs of any player over the last 30 days, you gotta love him. I traded Varitek to make room for him. Not regreting that move.

what's not to love about this guy....hits cleanup, has 3 guys ahead of him who do a solid job getting on base, switch hitter, locked up the DH spot when not catching, and a proven track record in the minors. top 5 catcher this year.

Now I shall copy and paste this same post in the remaining 37 v-mart threads.

figured it would be interpreted as sarcastic, but perhaps it wasn't an exaggeration when I said 37 threads?!?!?!?

Victor Martinez ... here's another case of a guy that was really hyped as a fantasy sleeper last year and fell right on his face. Then this year, everyone forgets about him and he ends up tearing the cover off the ball.

This is similar to Hank Blalock last year. Everyone forgot about Blalock after he was hyped up in 2002 and didn't produce. He goes undrafted in most leagues and has a stellar sophomore effort. Maybe this is an example to remember for Joe Mauer next year....
